Sundar Pichai, 21 Nov 2012In developed countries this phone is subsidized by Google that is why it is so cheap. This is ... more Good reasons, but google is too partial in that case.
'm from developing county.
In that case,Google services might vanished from the planet Earth earlier than expected (2016).
$350 in US is exclusive of Tax and Shipping
Shipping shouldnt be the reason for diff. If so, most of the mobiles are manufactured in China (not sure of LG) which means the mobiles should be of higher price in US than in India.
In developed countries this phone is subsidized by Google that is why it is so cheap. This is because in Developed countries people buy apps,music etc from Google Play Store from which Google makes money.On most of phones they make more money than the subsidy cost.In other countries piracy is very high and there is no significant revenue so they cannot recover the subsidy cost.
Gone through the XDA Forums where ppl say that Nexus 4 Doesn't support USB OTG.. :( is it true?
Thought i could manage with USB OTG though the internal memory is low.. Now even that option is out.. pls confirm..
Wll got mine tuesday 191112 in AUS from the Google it is rocket on sterods consider this thing faster than some laptops. The screen appearance is bright and very clear. Tested out WiFi with Youtube and the picture quality and performance over my previous Galaxy S2 is just great. Those that have the likes of the galaxy S3 will see maybe only small inprovement in this area but will gain in other areas quite a bit my som has the G S3 and we were able to compare. As for the iPhone 5my other son has this one and not yet compared them The layout and functionality of the Nexus is really straight forward and simpler than my G S2 I found easier to get around although alot of similarities. The one small pain was I had to take time out to get a Micro SIM but was real simple and at no cost to me and took less than 2 minutes and I was up and running. Further cruising through the menu brought me to check the software and to my surprise it needed to be updated to get the latest Jelly Bean 4.02 but again on WiFi was so quick took no time at all. In the hand it feels a bit brick like in weight but liveable Thickness ok I must admitt on reading specs thought it would feel thicker but feels ok. Another nervous thing ws it does have a glass back but got a rubber surround back case of eBay for $9.45 local should have by end of week Have not experienced any issues yet and hopefully will not in future. The speaker atthe base of the unit on the back is just incredible audible wise. Love the quirky way when you lock the screen it is like a TV turning off. Well that's my report so far.

After searching 5 hours on Google I found this:
Those soft keys always pissed me off but tablet mode is extremely cool, even if you don't have soft keys.
