NewEgg has an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus priced at $700 - still one hefty investment
Needless to say, there’s no doubt that you’ll need to shell out a ton of money to show off the latest and greatest in the Android kingdom, but for some, buying the Samsung Galaxy Nexus might seemingly leave them bankrupt.

Granted that it’s less than the $749.99 advertised price over at Expansys-USA, NewEgg’s offering for the highly prized GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is still a costly investment on its own. Specifically, coughing up $699.99 will win you a brand spanking new unlocked version of the very first Ice Cream Sandwich powered smartphone – though, you’ll probably scrounge for money in the coming weeks after buying it.

Well, it’s not the first time that NewEgg has offered the 16GB version of the Galaxy Nexus – seeing that it was listed over a week ago, but was priced at $60 more. Maybe people weren’t motivated in buying it at over $750, but now that it’s under the $700 threshold, some might find solace in it now.

Nevertheless, we’d imagine it getting another price drop very soon if orders don’t live up to expectations – albeit, we’re sure it’ll also be reduced when Verizon’s version finally decides to come out of hiding.

"Samsung Galaxy Nexus Titanium Silver 3G Unlocked Cell Phone / Android 4.0 / 5 MP Camera / 16GB Internal Memory (GT-i9250)"

3g? and why does it show 5-stars but there are no reviews to read?

I believe people can give a rating without adding a review on that website.

Not sure what you're seeing but at 5:11 PM EST I see six written reviews under feedback.

Unfortunately I also see that it's also Sold Out.

It's 3G because its the GSM version of the Nexus. I haven't seen any speed results using AT&T's HSPA+ yet, but I haven't really looked.

Am i reading that correct, they say $700 is steep? WTF? How many top tier smartphones cost well under $700? Sheesh, anyone who bought an iPhone off contract paid about $650 or more for it, but $700 is somehow steep?

Absolutely . Thats exactly what I thought when i read the word " steep". Apple bias.

Now i see the newegg version with LTE too and it says compatible with ATT. If ATT does not release their version with ATT it would be bitterly disappointing.
