    I know there are at least two different versions of the Galaxy Nexus (one with LTE, and one without it). However, I was wondering if someone could also confirm if there are versions of the Galaxy Nexus being sold with only specific bands enabled (ie. region-specific) as supposed to the full range (2G quad, 3G penta).

    There are variants of the GSM model. The Canadian version, for example, is a i9250m instead of an i9250.

    I wonder if there are others?

    isn't that just a variant in model #. I guess you are correct tho places like AUS and Canada would be diff band versions.

    OP can you go a little deeper by what you mean by "region specific"

    I mean region-specific as in only certain bands enabled for the device, rather than the full spectrum (2G quad, 3G penta). For example, I know the Nexus S had a North American version and a European version (among others)... their supported bands were different.

    I'm asking this because I'm thinking of purchasing the phone from a non-service provider retailer (like Expansys)... I want to make sure that the one I purchase will not be missing North American bands. I learned this the hard way a few years back.
