    Nexus One In Japan

    Hi folks, I am a Softbank Japan unlocked Iphone 3GS user but am dying to get the Nexus One. Softbank in Japan is GSM 3G so I dont see why I couldnt just plug in my Sim card and rock out.. but when I go the Google/phone page it says "we are sorry but the Nexus One is not available in your country".

    Why is that? I thought the phone is available to anyone that wants it. I have a Softbank Japan SIM card. Whats the problem?

    Are they restricting sales in any other countries???

    Yes. They are currently restricting the sales. Although, people in restricted areas have been buying them on ebay, for a much higher price.

    I wonder what is the point of restricting the sales. If they are worried about their negotiations with the carriers regarding subsidization.. wouldn't it be better to have sales figures of unsubsidized sales as a negotiation leverage tool.

    Man Google is screwing this up... with the bad PR the customer service is currently enjoying.. and restricting sales from people who want to buy them.... man Im a bit disappointed.

    It could be other things to. For example, they only have the quantity in stock to supply a select number of countries.

    Well that wouldnt make much sense because I can buy it from Ebay (at a huge mark up) and it would be delivered. The whole point of selling from the site I thought was supposed to avoid these type of issues.

    when you are buying from eBay, it is not same as buying from a distributor.
    seller at eBay may mark your item as "Gift", and it is therefore not taxable for some countries.
    it is ethical and law issue
