Cost of Ownership: Nexus One vs iPhone 3GS vs Droid vs Palm Pre

We have been covering the Google Conference about Android and quite extensively today. If you missed any of our previous posts, you can take a look at them below.

However, now that the phone is out and users can buy it for either $179 with a contract or $599 unlocked at, is it really worth buying?

BillShrink has the answer to that question in the form of a cost of ownership comparison between the Nexus One, iPhone 3GS, Motorola Droid and Palm Pre.

From the comparison done, Palm Pre is the cheapest phone to own over 2 years. However, Nexus One is cheaper than both the Motorola Droid and iPhone 3GS, thanks to the network it will be available on, T-Mobile.
