Google’s Andy Rubin just posted in the official Google Mobile blog that they are now offering an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus for only $399 over at the Google Pay Store.
That price translates to about Php17k at current exchange rates. That’s really cheap!

First available in the U.S., Galaxy Nexus costs $399 and arrives at your door unlocked, without a carrier commitment or contract. You can use it on the GSM network of your choice, including T-Mobile and AT&T. It also comes pre-installed with the Google Wallet app which lets you easily make purchases and redeem offers with a tap of your phone. Best of all, we’ll give you a $10 credit to get you started with your new mobile wallet.
There’s one minor problem though — the devices section of the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/devices) is not available in the Philippines. Either you ask a friend or relative in the US to buy it for you or you can use a US IP address to gain access to that section of the Play Store.
