Preorder the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Now for $690

October 22, 2011

Are you dying to finally get your hands on Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich? It looks to be that NegriElectronics can make all of your dreams come true. They are offering up the phone not only before Google and Samsung even announce a release date, but they are doing it all for just $689.50. Although this price does seem to be a bit on the higher end, it is perfectly normal for a 4G phone to be more expensive. Additionally, we had witnessed Australian pre-order that went as high as $829 via Mobicity. That’s crazy talk!

Despite the slight price hike, with Ice Cream Sandwich just hitting the market, and only on the Galaxy Nexus, I am sure that a good deal of Android fanatics, like myself, would easily pay $829 for the Galaxy Nexus unlocked. However, NegriElectronics has made it clear that we will not have to do that. But, if that is not enough for you, you can also go sign up for direct updates about the Galaxy Nexus from Google here. Finally, if you haven’t seen or have forgot what all of the hype is about, or if you just want a little refresher, take a look at the product information NegriElectronics has provided its customers with:


The Samsung GALAXY Nexus is the first phone to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich – the version that is meant to put an end to fragmentation. The handset uses the concept of buttonless front and thin bezel to fit a 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED display in a phone the size of handsets with smaller screens. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor, and capable of shooting HD 1080p video.

    The only thing I noticed about the preorder page was it didn’t let you choose what model you wanted, I think, maybe I didn’t go far enough into it, but either way, I’m not going to spend $700 to find out they sent me the LTE version when I need the hspa+ version. Has anyone actually preordered from this site? Can you choose the model you need?

      I thought LTE was the only version available at launch, maybe I’m wrong though

        In the united states it will just be the LTE version. I have to import mine from the UK for the hspa+ model which kind of sucks because ill be paying a lot more
