And the Apple-Google battle rages onwards. On Tuesday, Google rolled out an AT&T-compatible Nexus One, a move that puts the top-of-the-line Android smartphone on the same network as the top-selling Apple iPhone. According to a handful of early reports from around the blogosphere, the AT&T version is identical to the T-Mobile-powered Nexus One that garnered such rave reviews back in January.

Well, not totally identical. Although T-Mobile subsidized the Nexus One handset, AT&T users will have to fork over a hefty $529 to get their hands on an unlocked Nexus One. Mull that over for a second: 529 bucks. That's five times as much as it would cost you to buy an Apple iPhone 3G with a two-year plan from AT&T. And that's more than twice as much as it would cost you to get an AT&T-powered Apple iPhone 3G S.

As a matter of fact, for $529, you could get a brand new Apple iPad.
