    Hi guys,
    I have just started programming for Android and therefor am looking for an Android phone to test my apps on.

    From what I have learned, the best one around is Nexus S with AMOLED... since I am in Europe, I guess it would be best for me to order one from the UK where I found one for 346 GPB or about 563$ + shipping.

    What do you think, is it a good deal?

    346 euro to cad = about 476 so I think its a great deal for a brand new one. check out ebay there are a bunch of cheap one brand new! you can order a us one but check the band to work with your carrier

    Thanks guys. Just ordered it for total of 367.07 GBP from a UK shop ;)

    I didn't want to get it from ebay, as who knows what they will send you, such as S-LED instead of S AMOLED. :) Also, from US, it would be like two weeks in the mail and would have to pay VAT to get it. So UK rules in this situation. :)
