Maybe you could just post a Hot Deals thread called "Engadget" and in it could just be a link to Engadget.

Unlikely Sprint or Verizon will get this phone. No mention of any CDMA or LTE variants of this phone.

Google is targeting selling this device directly through the Play Store unlocked and unsubsidized to people out of contract on GSM carriers. This means it may be big in Europe where they don't do subsidized phones and where 4G is not as developed because it's a powerful phone for a good price. I just don't see it being that popular in the US due to lack of great GSM networks (Better than it use to be) and no LTE. This is not a phone for your mom, its a phone for enthusiasts, and yes I am an Android/Google Fan.

Can't wait to get 4.2 on my Nexus 7.

$199 with a 2 year contract is a great deal. samsung needs to come out with a quad core galaxy S3 to compete with this.

I've got to say that I'm surprised that they are only charging $299 for the HSPA+ Nexus 7. This has to be the cheapest HSPA+ MSRP in history.

It's a Nexus. This is the way they have been for quite a while. There is a bunch of articles about it when the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 came out. Start your search there. "Galaxy Nexus no SD slot" etc

Rumor is the S4 will be out in February. Let's hope it's another all carrier launch like the S3 was. It might be worth waiting for.

Is this price official? That's much lower than expected. Also what the hell is TMo thinking, $100-$150 subsidy on a 2year contract? They should be giving it away for free / $50 top.

EDIT: Wow, that is official. Seriously they've outdone themselves. S4 Pro 720p..NEXUS..for $300. Any OEM who isn't talking about halving their prices on current high end models is out of their mind. I wonder if the E380 price will stay for UK.

Not to mention, the Nexus 10 with it's glorious resolution for $399? This kind of mobile wide push is what MS should've done with W8.

Amazing price for a no contract phone. I'm selling my 4S to offset the cost

Prices are official. It's on the Google Play store already.
