I was just burned on ebay for an international Galaxy Nexus. I'm in the process of trying to get my money back. Where can I buy/preorder a Galaxy Nexus from a reputable buy where I won't get shafted? I'm leaning towards Amazon UK, where I figure I can't get hosed. The only downside for that is the shipping date is 12/2/2011.
You would think that wouldn't matter, but I am cell phone junkie and would like it as soon as possible.

I just ordered mine from CloveUk, at the time of buying the phone their site said in stock. But soon got an email from them that they are sold out and that they will receive fresh stock by Friday. Bummer.
I know they are reputable but I'm just ticked off at being misguided at the time of buying the phone.

Where to buy?
I want to buy the Galaxy Nexus, and so far I've narrowed it down to three sites: expansys-usa.com, clove.co.uk, and handtec.co.uk. Has anyone had any experience with these sites, and if so, are they good, reliable sources to get a phone from?If I've made a difference, please make sure to thank me.

Handtec just updated their blog to say that some orders were confused in the warehouse and people were issued tracking numbers, but there was no associated phone. If your phone doesn't show as picked up, you'll be waiting until the 25th for shipments. That stinks for me as I will be traveling that week.

Re: Where to buy?
I recommend Clove UK. I ordered mine on Monday, and after some security issues that were sorted out yesterday (I had to send them a copy of my drivers license in order to confirm my address), it shipped out this morning and, according to them, will only take 2-3 days to arrive here in the USA. Although I haven't actually received the device, I can tell you that their customer service is great, with very quick responses and great information.

Just got this email from Clove:
Thank you for placing an order for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Up until today we had been expecting to receive more stock of the Galaxy Nexus on Friday 25th November, but unfortunately the stock has now been delayed. We now expect stock to arrive at the beginning of next week and we expect to ship orders on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th November.
We will receive enough stock next week to cover all outstanding orders and look forward to shipping your order as soon as possible.

Re: Reputable seller
Handtec just updated their blog with this:
25/11 U pdate: Samsung Distribution is stating that units are currently being ‘flashed’ to fix any issues – deliveries should commence in the week commencing 28th November. Please note this is information from Samsung Distribution and not Samsung directly
