friend is coming back from USA next week and for the first time, i really had nothing planned to get him to get me.i wanted to get Galaxy nexus but it is delayed (gsm unlocked edition). prices are not really lower. even if you look at the ipad, the difference is just a couple of thousand bucks. phones are definitely not cheap in usa because unlocked versions are not popular and are usually overpriced. what you can do is to look at stuff which is not really available in india and you want to get it. avoid getting phones.

Well getting phones is indeed a good idea if you get the right one. I mean, buy any new AT&T locked phone and get it here. There areplenty of those on eBay from genuine sellers. YOu do save a lot of bucks compared to buying the same stuff here. There are the LG Thrill and Motorola Atrix, both available for around 280 - 300 USD, and the Atrix 2 for 350 USD. If you want an unlocked, you can look at the Xperia range, though personally, I wouldn't recommend them

No point of buying nexus s now. Specs are outdated. Get a motorola atrix 2 for around 350$. For a similar price you can also find an LG optimus g2x or a motorola droid 3.
