Suffering from Jelly Bean envy? Samsung Galaxy Nexus now available for £300

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the first smartphone to be released with a HD ready display (1,280 x 800-pixel), and the first to come with Android 4.0.4 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich).

The phone can now be bought for as little as £300 from the popular Ebay retailer, e_cell. The smartphone comes with a one-year warranty, unlocked and unbranded. It was previously on sale for £355 and carried an original retail price of £550, when it was launched in November 2011.

The i9250, as it is known, features a curved “Contour” 4.65in Super AMOLED HD display, a dual-core TI OMAP4460 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. There is also 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera with full HD video recording, a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera. It is powered by a massive 1750mAh battery, with NFC, a microSIM slot, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, a microUSB port and DLNA compatibility.

As with previous Nexus devices, this one doesn't come with a microSD card, but the phone will receive the new Jelly Bean Android 4.1 upgrade.
