It is one of those days, when I envy the Android fans in United States, the reason? Well, Google has re-opened its online store to sell Galaxy Nexus directly to consumers in the country.
The search giant is currently offering three versions of the smartphone to consumers – Unlocked, with Verizon and with Sprint. While the unlocked version has been priced at USD 399.99 (yes!), the contract versions will cost USD199.99 with a two-year commitment.
This is the second-time, Google is trying to directly sell a Nexus smartphone to consumers, the first attempt with Nexus One in 2010 was a big flop. We hope company has fixed the service and other issues this time and consumers are not disappointed with their purchase from Google store.
The Galaxy Nexus can now be grabbed by the US consumers from the devices section in Google Play store. As this section is called ‘devices’, it looks like we are going to see more such smartphones and tablets on sale in the coming days.
For those, who have been living in a cave, Galaxy Nexus is the company reference smartphone for the Ice Cream Sandwich release of Android and comes with a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0.4, 16GB of internal storage, NFC and 5MP rear camera.
