Forget pre-orders and waiting for Verizon to get their ducks in order, you can get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
(GSM) unlocked right now from a US online retailer. Yup, no shipping overseas or any of that fancy stuff. If you have the penny change ($750) you can pick up this Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich flagship device right now from Expansys in the US. Who's getting their credit card out?
