Google now selling unlocked HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus for $399
Google has just gotten back into the business of selling smartphones directly. The HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus is going to be for sale, unlocked, for $399 in a new “Devices” section of Google Play. Customers in the US could only get the GSM Galaxy Nexus previously from a “gray market” retailer, as only the Verizon and brand-new Sprint variants have been available to-date.
Both of those cost $199.99 with a two-year contract, which makes the unlocked (read: contract-free) version only twice as expensive. This may all sound a bit familiar if you’ve been following Google since it first introduced Android. The search giant originally only sold the Nexus One — the first “pure Google device” — in unlocked form directly from its website.
