A month after Google Nexus One’s official launch we’re a step closer to getting hold of it here in the UK. Gadget emporium Play.com has the handset available to pre-order for a hefty £599.
According to the website the Android 2.1 sporting phone will be avialable from the 16th of February. Shipping will take 3-4 working days and you’ll receive your Google phone in mint condition and unlocked to any network, according to our calculations you’ll be up and running by the 20th of February.

But hold fire Android fans (as with our exclusive review handset) UK models won’t come with the much-hyped multitouch support. Also missing will be Google Navigation, a free sat nav application with voice search, 3D satellite images and even traffic status, it’s potentially a serious rival to sat nav apps.
What you will get here accross the pond is a multi tasking svelte handset with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera, push email and a decent music player. You’ll also be one of the first to be safe in the knowledge that you have a potential Apple iPhone killer and the best Android phone yet sitting pretty in your pocket.
