    Again, we start with our British brethren. You're ordering your phones! Tell us about it and while you're at it, please give us Americans HOPE! :D

    Why was this just opened? Unless it's still only for those across the pond :)

    The thread is open for everyone. At this point, only Brits can order it, generally, so it is my thought that they'll use it first.

    Clover UK is now shipping the Nexus to the states for a $25.00 shipping fee, brings the price right around 700 USD.

    i ordered mine yesterday (i9250). it's been shipped via fed-ex. just waiting for the shipping info to update so i can see when i get it. i have all the way through next tues off so i'm hoping it comes on mon so i can mess around with it :p

    edit: also, i find it just a tad confusing that there's not two different sections for two different devices. one is the Galaxy Nexus i9250 (GSM) and one is the Galaxy Nexus i515 (VZW LTE) :thinking:

    Gave up waiting on Verizon and ordered it. Just waiting for shipping info to refresh! I'd rather pay $55 less a month for my pseudo-unimited plan. Never go over four gigs anyway.

    What are the downsides of ordering from the UK if you live in the USA?

    1) The charger won't work.

    Warranty?

    Has anyone every used Handtec before? Are they reliable? Also if anyone is ordering from Expansy use the coupon 20OFFLS and you get 20 bucks off your order. Just wanted to make sure people could save money.

    So I just took the plunge and ordered mine, my wife is going to be mad at me tomorrow when she finds out. :eek: Oh well, I will be selling a couple of my phones to make up for it. :cool:

    It sucks that this hasn't been released here in the states yet for everyone to enjoy.

    Couple of questions

    1) Does any know if they will include an adapter or different plug for American Outlets like I got for my international Galaxy S II?

    2) So I ordered from expansy and paid for next day shipping(I'm impatient I know) Does anyone know how long it took for them to ship their phones out? I am hoping to get mine before the weekend, I go back to work next week, I have been out since before Thanksgiving for surgery and would like to have my new phone when going back.

    Thanks

    Expansy rep told me it comes with the EU adapter but they include a usa attatchment to convert it. Negrei included a full usa adapter with mine.

    Thanks wasn't a big deal, but nice to know that I will get something for all that money.:rolleyes:

    Not like I don't have a ton of cables around the house though.

    they ship as soon as stock comes in. took 4 days from order date for my first one since i had to wait one day for stock to come in. they haven't received stock for this week yet as far as i can tell, so should be today or tomorrow (was today last week mine shipped), meaning you should get yours tomorrow or fri at the latest if this holds true.

    also regarding the adapter, it's better than the one i got with my SGS2 back when i got it. i received a black adapter that fits snugly with the EURO charger. i was pleasantly surprised at this. i ended up buying a Samsung wall charger for the SGS2 and thought i was going to have to do the same for the GNex (wattage is different from SGS2) but it won't be necessary this time.

    Ordered mine + temporary cheapo case yesterday from MobileFun (a supplier I've used a lot over the years) - I had a play with a dummy model in-store prior to ordering to check the size was ok (which was my only concern).
    I'm switching from a Motorola Atrix which I got with a new Orange contract in May; enormous mistake on my part when moving from a Nexus One. Motoblur was the main issue for me when on Froyo, and the recent Gingerbread update did nothing to make me want to keep the Atrix.
    I should have never moved away from vanilla Android - mea culpa

    Sat at home now prepping for the big transfer - my last swap over only took 4 hours of configuring, so I'm hoping to beat my personal best lol

    in all the rampant excitement of getting it, i totally forgot about that whole side of it.

    swype doesn't work on it (resolution issues) :( and now that's got me thinking that loads of the other apps i use all the time might not, so this might be the toughest migration yet!

    (get mine tomorrow morning)
