The Google Nexus One is finally out, after half a month of rave rumours (which are surprisingly accurate). Here’s some figures for potential buyers in Singapore.
Cost of the phone $529
Cost of shipping: Approximately $26.65 by DHL
Import taxes and duty at Custom: 7% GST on Cost of phone + Shipping inclusive
The whole cost would come up to close to $600 USD, which is about $840 SGD.
All my figures are rounded up and based on my estimation of shipping charges. The cost might be higher depending on the type of shipping option that Google uses.
This looks like a phone that every geek should have, but I’m waiting. Who knows one of our local telcos might have a surprise for us in the next few days to offer this with contract.
