That is the price. For the UK and the 1% of the US able to pay that ridiculous amount for a Nexus. It won't launch for in the US for $880, more like $549 or $599 off contract.

thats because europe and the britts have that rediculous VAT tax that jacks the price of everything so high.

That's right, I forgot about that. That would make the phone like $730 in the US, if you subtract the 20% VAT. LAME!

I was really hoping it would be less, the PS3 wasn't even that much when it launched at $600! The prices of these phones have inflated far beyond their actual worth. There's just no way the Nexus costs Google/Samsung any more than $300/each to produce.
