If anyone is still looking to buy a Nexus, I got mine from Mobile Hi-Tech in Newmarket. I think they've got them for $680 out the door. Mine came with a free screen protector.

Philica: I was looking at getting the galaxy nexus as well. You guys seem to be recommending einfo to buy from. However their site says its the LTE model. Is their info still wrong, i emailed them and they said it was in fact the 4G model. However im not sure if the guy fully understood what i was asking. Link
Yes, their info is *still* wrong. They didn't seem to understand what I was on about when I emailed them, but the one I bought was from the link you posted, and turned out to be HSPA+/GSM (not LTE) and works fine.

egel is correct, got mine a week ago today and working fine on 2 Degrees. Best phone I have bought, smooth and quick. You won't regret buying one.

One thing to beware of if you are very sensitive to imperfections in displays or will be using your phone for many years...

The Super AMOLED display gets burn in (well, it has on my GNex) - 5 months and when the display is in a certain orientation there is a noticeable yellow tinge across the top 95% of the display compared with the bottom 5% where the ICS soft buttons are. Also my one also gets streaking in low greys (especially noticeable on solid red).

Any AMOLED for the next few years is likely to have a problem with the blue LEDs burnin.

That said, I love being on the latest ICS. If you don't mind rooting your phone I think there are better options than the GNex.

For the same price range what would you suggest then?
