Unlocked Galaxy Nexus hits unofficial retailers in US
posted by Michael H. / Nov 23, 2011, 3:48 PM
The latest rumors have the launch of the Galaxy Nexus being pushed to December in the US, but even so, that is only for Verizon customers. We still have no idea when or if the GSM version will be made available through official retail partners in the US like Best Buy. But, if you're really jonesing for a Galaxy Nexus, and you don't mind paying an early adopter tax, you can purchase a GSM Nexus from Expansys for $750, with free shipping.
This is the 16 GB GSM version of the Nexus with a pentaband radio, meaning it will work just fine on AT&T or T-Mobile. Projections have put the Nexus at around $600 unlocked if/when it becomes more widely available, so this may be upwards of a $150 early adopter tax, but at least you won't have to sit around getting more and more angry at Google and retail partners for not giving more info on the official release.

heck why not just wait till the Iphone 5 launch to finally release the Galaxy nexus... by then the Iphone 5 will have dual core 2 GHZ processors and 12mp camera. By then there will be quad core Android phones out too. Nothing like buying a Nexus that is outdated long before it hits the market... way to go Samsung/Google Verizon you sure know how to generate excitement about a flagship phone!

Even if nexus comes out when the iphone 6 not even the 5, the nexus will still far out perform the iphone.
