Galaxy Nexus

We heard it was going to happen, and today the Galaxy Nexus has appeared with a price and an "add to cart" button again in Google Play, but things are still a bit off. Prior to the sales ban, we were able to click and get almost instant gratification knowing the phone was shipping out immediately, but now we're seeing a two to three week delay. We're not sure if this is a way to get time to make changes to skirt Apple's legal team, but it sounds reasonable.

All we know is that with Jelly Bean, this is the phone to have. We're glad to see that add to cart button. If you've been thinking about it, might want to click it now before the next round of courtroom lunacy happens.

Order the Galaxy Nexus from Google Play. Thanks everyone who sent this in!

my mother say about this on the news then asked me what a nexus was. Long story short her and 3 of her friends plan on buying one thanks apple she would have never known about this

Good news for everyone. I am loving JB on my VZW GN. Its not even an official version and its officially awesome!

I agree. I hot mines on Friday and after two days of playing with it and jb I went with my dad and had him get one too! I told him he's going to love it. Can't go wrong with a nexus device!

The ban is already in effect.....it seems this made the phone more marketable. APPLE scared = instant hype = more views and looks Androids/Nexus' way. Instant Fail = iFail. Backfire Apple.

The injunction is because of some small software feature; it remains to be decided in court if this feature is even ifringing and if the patent is valid. Even if it is decided, against all logic, that the patent stays and the feature infringes, the Nexus hardware will continue to be sold with slightly modified software.

TL/DR: no, this ban is a fart in the wind -- as always with Apple's legal action.

I finally grabbed mine 4 hours ago, via my operator in Serbia and its stuck to ma` hand....
...cant let it go...charging adjusting customizing
Its all Galaxy from now on for me! ;):)
Am super exciting and thrilled to have my first Android device :D
Cheers

Just ordered 2. Cutting the contract, going prepaid and ensuring I am always on the latest version of Android = money well spent.

I am going to take the same route when the next nexus get released.
from now on only nexus.. people wake up...

So sort've related, but not.. why can't we purchase the Vehicle Dock anymore? It seemed to go unavailable the same time the GNex did. Except it didn't come back :-/

All right, Jerry: you finally convinced me. GNex + JB sounds like the best of all worlds. Still got a couple of months left on my T-Mo contract, but after that I am contract-free. So.... I am paying for the $80/mo plan now, does anyone know of a better deal with T-Mo once my contract does expire? Can I get a decent amount of minutes and data for less? I am only using 150 minutes and 150-250 MB data per months. Thanks, all!

I like the idea behind the nexus but until they get a better camera on it I just can't see using it as my everyday phone.

I've taken some great shots with my GNEX outdoors. There are some low light conditions where things get a bit grainy but you can tweak the camera settings and get a decent photo. I'm overall very happy with the camera and the phone in general.

As am I. I've never had a camera on a phone that didn't realistically struggle with low-light. That's a flaw of the design. It's not like you need to take pictures in the dark anyway. I have a DSLR for really good long exposure photography.

So is this coming with JB out of the box?
It makes sense if it ships in 1-2 weeks. JB is expected to be released around that time
