Google Nexus S reaches Canada early

Google's range-topping Nexus S reached Canada for the first time on Thursday as a trio of carriers have picked it up. The Telus version is the definitive model so far and is the first in North America to work on the 850MHz and 1,900MHz bands, beating out AT&T's. It also has one of the lowest superficial prices for the Android 2.3 phone, costing $180 on a three-year plan, but goes up to $550 contract-free.

Telus has also put out a Koodo edition for those who want to use the Nexus S on the sister carrier's cheaper Tab plans. It costs $275 on a Tab but could cost as little as $425 up front.

In Quebec, the phone is now available through Videotron. Its version uses the same 1,700MHz 3G as on the original T-Mobile edition but is otherwise identical. Videotron sells it for $150 for anyone agreeing to a $40 or higher monthly smartphone plan and offers it contract-free for $530.

Bell and Rogers versions, as well as possibly small carriers like Mobilicity and Wind Mobile, are expected to have their versions as soon as next week. It's also possible that an unlocked, carrier-independent version will arrive at Best Buy Canada much as it exists in the US.
