If you’ve been holding out for a better deal on an unlocked Galaxy Nexus after finding out that Google dropped the price to $400 in the Play Store, you may want to listen up. Looks like online retailer Expansys is technically matching that same deal on their unlocked Galaxy Nexus but offers free shipping in the US and if you’re outside of Illinois, no tax. That’s almost $50 worth of savings if buying through them, instead of the Google Play Store.
What’s more is Expansys offers more payment options like using Paypal or Amazon and will ship internationally. As a bonus, the Galaxy Nexus from Expansys does, in fact, features the YAKJU software build which means this device will receive updates direct from Google (no need to mess around with flashing a different build). Just power up and you’ll be prompted for the Android 4.0.4 update with no fuss. Good deal, right? Anyone picking one of these up? Now, when someone finds a white version of the G-Nex for that same price, let me know.
