Amazon UK has vendor with Samsung GALAXY Nexus in stock November 7th for $930
The version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on the Amazon UK site is SIM free and unlocked which means in the U.S., it will be running over AT&T's 3G pipelines. The price is 539.99 GBP which is approximately $930 USD. Of course, if you are a Verizon customer, and have an update to burn, you will spend just $299.99 with a 2-year contract.
waiting for a hot device, and tends to move quickly when your battery indicator turns red.

I'm now concerned about that curved glass adding a stress point leading to easier breakage. Galaxy Nexus and Droid Razr are back to neck and neck for me.
Ahh... I can't wait till some actual consumer hands on reviews come in...

Curved designs tend to be stronger than straight ones. For example, check out the short best bridges in the world.

Thats actually a normal price for a phone in Britain
So sad that I have got used to that price though (Why is everything so expensive in England!!)

like rd_nest said you pay less taxes, but you should be happy in my country a phone like this has a starting price of at least $1200 and we pay the triple of taxes that you pay

So £435 = $695. Which is to be expected for such a high-end handset.

At least until President Herman Cain gives us 9% federal sales tax...

At $700, it's the same price as in the US. $300 is the price on a 2 yr contract.

I believe this device will get a huge drop in price about 2 to 4 months from now..

Except the iPhone of course. God bless price fixing!
