    I have just been for a look in CPW at the nexus s and desire HD.
    To be honest I preferred the Nexus as it felt a bit more pocket friendly.
    I like the idea of the nexus s having a gyroscope in it also. Not sure what use that will be if no other android phones have one though.
    The nexus s is supposed to have a better GPU in it also.

    CPW wanted a silly amount for both of the phones on an orange upgrade.

    I have since prices up a nexus s and DHD on an 18 month contract.

    Ok the nexus s:

    Well, I'm in America so our carrier system is all screwed up as far as upgrading, pricing, contract lengths, etc, so I can't help you out there. However, I would go with the Nexus S for the phone. I intend to get one when I get my tax return late February. All spiffy hardware aside, the biggest draws to the Nexus S are pure stock Android with priority upgrades and easy to root for development and customization.

    Also, the gyroscope is intended mostly for gaming. It gives the phone more motion control so very unique games can be built for it.

    The gyroscope also has its benefits on augmented reality as well. Having gyroscopic APIs means Android is looking for more things besides phones and tablets.

    well our phone cost is off set by a higher monthly contract fee. Contracts range from 12 months to 36 months. If you are willing to sign up for 24 months plus you can get allot of phones for inclusive of your monthly contract fee.
    Going for the nexus s would cost me
