Considering we're only in January, the promise of the Nexus One arriving in Australia through Vodafone "sometime 2010" isn't completely reassuring, especially with the rapid quality jumps that happens in the smartphone market. But at least it's something to look forward to, I guess.
According to Liam Tung at ZDNet, Google's agreement with Vodafone to release the Nexus One in the UK and other European countries is a global partnership in each territory Vodafone has a network, which obviously includes Australia.
So ultimately now, we have no idea if we'll see the phone next week or sometime in December, but sometime this year Vodafone will sell the Nexus One in Australia. Who's happy?
