Bringing back memories of Google's experiment with direct-to-consumer sales of the Nexus One smartphone in 2010, the search giant has just announced that it is selling the unlocked HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus smartphone in its Google Play web store. The Galaxy Nexus is Google's flagship smartphone device, and has been available on the global market since the fall of last year. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED 720p HD display. Google says that this is the first time the unlocked Galaxy Nexus is being made officially available to U.S. customers. The unlocked version works with both AT&T and T-Mobile, and includes support for Google Wallet. Buyers can snag one in the Devices section of the Google Play web store for $399 now.source: Google
