We've heard a ton about the Nexus One over the last couple of weeks. We now know the basic details of its specs, we've got an idea of the pricing and sales arrangement, and we have it on decent authority that the device will launch in the U.S. on January 5th. Unfortunately, one of the things the rumors have been rather silent on is the Nexus One's overseas availability. Since the Google phone will be a GSM device, it's going to be able to work in the vast majority of carriers worldwide. However, that doesn't mean most countries will be able to order the Nexus One or buy it carrier-subsidized. The Guardian (via Phandroid) has just reported that Google has approached several operators in the UK. They've been chatting up both T-Mobile and Vodafone in order to gauge interest for carrying the Nexus One ahead of the new iPhone's launch in Britain.This is far from confirmation of UK availability, but it's the only news we've got on any foreign carriers handling the Nexus One. Hopefully we'll start to hear more news from carriers in other countries soon. If Google really wants this device to be a hit they're going to want it sold as far and wide as absolutely possible.
