The specs are great on paper. It will work nearly anywhere in the world. The price was high compared to other phones, but the specs make up for it; everything is expensive in AU. I got it cheaper as an import, but warranty is through the OS company. It's selling for ~$320 here in some places for my model, although you might be able to talk them down a bit.
The camera is disappointing. Take some pics of the sky and landscape and you can see the exposure all over the place--a halo around dark objects. Don't buy it for the camera.
Everything else is quite good, except support isn't quite there. Maybe google cutbacks before the sale?
The original accessories haven't been released in AU yet, you can only buy the phone. We're always last in line and I know they will be expensive. The flip case is on eBay for just under $40! I want the grip shell or something like it, maybe the Amzer pudding case. The back covers are extortionate for a piece of plastic.
