Wade: I would check out the LG Nexus 4, ships with the latest 4.2, will end up costing you the same or less to import yourself and arguably far better value for money

I would tend to agree, assuming that pricing really is similar, the LG Nexus is a much more advanced phone.

The non-removable battery is a show stopper for me. I have two batteries and like the ability to swap one out if the main one dies.
