Get yourself an unlocked and cheap Galaxy Nexus directly from Google.
What a news !!! “Galaxy Nexus has been brought back from dead by Google Play Store”, said by the Android boss Andy Rubin on Google Mobile Blog. That’s right folks, an unlocked HSPA+ version of the unfortunate device Galaxy Nexus has been made available on Google, directly to its customers at a price of just $399.
According to Rubin, Google will sell an unlocked version of Galaxy Nexus starting from today.
Since the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus ships unlocked, without a carrier obligation or contract, that means users can use it on the GSM carrier of their own choice. The device supports both AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s HSPA+ networks, with speeds up to 21 Mbps. Plus the unlocked Galaxy Nexus arrives at your doorstep with $10 credit to get you started with.
Galaxy Nexus by Samsung runs the latest Android software, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), with Google mobile services, Google Play and new features like Android Beam and Google+ mobile hangouts. It also offers a 4.65” HD Super AMOLED display that’s perfect for watching movies, playing games or reading books right on the go. The unlocked edition can work on 3G for both AT&T and T-Mobile users, not only that but it can also work abroad using local carriers’ SIM cards instead of paying a premium for data roaming. Google Wallet also comes preloaded on this version, getting around Verizon’s block on its model. Until now, Sprint’s version was the only official US model to have Wallet support.
A couple of years ago Google’s first attempt in the direct retail business flopped, with one cause being the customers’ reluctance to buy their phone through a channel that doesn’t provide “proper” support. But now the Galaxy Nexus, with a price tag of $399, can be one of the best options for those who look for a high edge Android smartphone without a contract and unlocked.
