How a $530 Nexus One Might Actually Save Money [Smartphones]

You’ve probably heard about Google’s Nexus One launch today, with a cost of $180 with a two-year T-Mobile contract and—wait, $530 without? Actually, that math might make sense, as blogger Ben Ferguson shows in his cost breakdown.

He’s considering buying a data-only plan from T-Mobile and relying primarily on free Gizmo5 calls through Google Voice and SkypeOut purchases, which means no mobile calling (unless you used the free Guava app). Then again, Ben sees some significant savings by the end of what would be a two-year contract, and considers himself a “near-total” dependent on Google services. Could you imagine making the data-only jump?
