    I like the price points of $299 for the 8GB and $349 for the 16GB!

    For that price i will take two pls…just kidding ofcuz. Say what u may, myself included abt the missing specs like more int memory, SD card slot and removable batteries…for the price no one should complain. The specs are top of the line..1.5GHz quad core S4 pro, 2GB RAM, 4.7″ IPS+ 720p screen, 8MP rear cam, 2100mAh (tho not removable), 16GB int storage (would have preferred 32GB + SD card but for this price it is ok), Android 4.2 JB, wireless charging. So the $299/8GB and $349/16GB price for the unlocked N4 is oh so very SWEEEEEEEEET.

    Google is doing great things. This is the second step to getting less carrier power in the US, which is a MUCH needed thing (the first step was Apple whipping AT&T to stay out of interfering with the OS years ago, but no one followed suit). I can’t wait for carriers here to lose subsidized pricing models and retail prices to go down.
