Nexus One vs iPhone, Droid & Palm Pre

Billshrink is out with its analysis of the Total Cost of Ownership of the latest crop of top smartphones (or "superphones" in Google parlance). The survey (large version after the jump) compares the overall total cost of ownership of the Google Nexus One vs. iPhone 3GS vs. Droid vs. Palm Pre.

There are two errors in the GPS row (reported to the author) -- both the Droid and the Nexus One include navigation. Also, I think that calling the version of Google Maps for iPhone "turn-by-turn" is a bit of a stretch. It simply doesn't compare to Google Maps Navigation which is included on the Droid and Nexus One.

Let's hope that Google adds navigation to the iPhone's Maps app soon, but I wouldn't hold my breath. I have a feeling that the relationship between Apple and Google has gone cold since Apple (and AT&T) banned Google Voice from the iPhone.
