Google begins selling the Galaxy Nexus for the low price of $399.99

Sure there is a crop of new phones coming out in the next couple months, but what about sticking with the solid Galaxy Nexus?

That’s right, Google is now offering the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus firect from the Google Play Market for the low, low price of $399.99. Before this announcement, there was no official way to get the unlocked GSM version of the phone and for myself this was the chief barrier of entry. I really wanted one of these bad boys but 1) I was not getting the CDMA version, and 2) not paying $500-$600 to get it shipped form overseas. Technical issues aside, the CDMA versions still cost $199.99 on contract–I would much rather pay $399.99 and be free to use my device on T-Mobile or AT&T (this also increases its resale value).

Another reason to buy this piece of kit with the looming quad core devices is its pure Google¬†experience. That means absolutely no bloatware and the fastest official software updates, so those of you already anxious for Android 5.0 Jelly Bean, this is the device to get. As a bonus, the phone’s Google Wallet app comes preloaded with a $10 credit as well! There is a non optional, UPS 2 day shipping and possible sales tax associated with the price so for Washington residents the grand total turns to be $436.12, still a great deal in my opinion, so head over to the Play Market and get shoppin’!
