If you were one of the first folks to jump on the Google Nexus One smartphone when it debuted and got the device as an upgrade at the discounted $379 price. That is discounted compared to the $529 unlocked price of the device.

You might be peeved when you hear that Google has decided to slash that upgrade price by $100 to $279. You may be mad until you hear that Google is going to refund all of those users who paid the original fee the $100.

Presumably, the refund will be in a refund back to your credit card unless the search giant pulls something like Apple did back when they refunded some iPhone buyers $100 in a gift card for its store. Exactly who qualifies for the new upgrade pricing is a bit of a mystery. New subscribers can get the handset for $179 with a new contract and the unlocked device still sells for $529.
