Customers of Three UK to get Galaxy Nexus free with two year contract

Customers of Three UK to get Galaxy Nexus free with two year contract
Specific pricing and availability of the Galaxy Nexus is now available for customers of Three UK. If you sign up for a 24 month contract at £34 a month you get the Galaxy Nexus free of charge. You can pre-order the phone now, with the first available delivery date set for this Friday.

It looks like Google and Samsung are going to be aggressive with the pricing of the Galaxy Nexus. This meshes well with the advertised retail pricing of $500 that Google listed for the Galaxy Nexus in the rules of their current contest to give away ten Galaxy Nexus handsets. It appears that Google hopes to sell quite a few of their new Google phones, perhaps with a renewed interest in pushing the Nexus brand into the minds of the mainstream consumer.

The pricing strategy is at odds with the rumored $299 on contract that Verizon is said to be charging, although Verizon generally adopts a standardized pricing strategy that is based more on the carrier’s interests then those of the handset manufacturers. $299 on contract has become the defacto price for LTE handsets on Verizon the last six months.

This may be good news for U.S. customers who aren’t on Verizon; you may be waiting a bit longer to get the Galaxy Nexus, but perhaps you'll be able to pick it up for a lot less money once it’s available.

Damn wish the U.S. carriers would offer a top end device for free with a 2yr CSA.

Hmmm... $300 on contract or $500 off.. it sure is tempting to buy it for $500 and not renew my contract, or have an upgrade available for something that surely will be too hard to pass up... 20 months between upgrades is FAR too long!

Scam alert! How did you buy one on ebay when it's not even out yet? Make sure to check the seller's recent feedback.

As much as it sucks to wait that is what i will do because i am never gonna give $300 for a new phone.

Nexus phones are all unlocked. It's Motorola that locks their bootloader.

Look, you will be able to buy it for much cheaper on AMAZON, new or upgrade customer - just like the DROID RAZR.
