Yes, a lot of websites will ship to UK. However, all goods will be declared as import tax chargeable and you will end up paying more compared to same product from UK retailer. Unless you want something that is exclusive to US there is no point ordering it.

To avoid UK tax you have to order from US Ebay, but it's still dependent on how good will be declared during shipping.

I think they are after the Nexus phone as it's in the related box top right, so could be worthwhile still?

It's not available anymore from US.
It will be same price as in UK + shipping. There is no point ordering it from US.

Only way to get around customs is to declare as gift and put item value accordingly with allowed gift import. Obviously, Google will not do that, so you need a private party to ship.

The Galaxy Nexus has never been on sale direct through Google here though and sure seems dearer in the uk. Have Apple stumped up the cash to block it now in US then?

Warranty issues would put me off ordering anyway.

Don't think anyone is missing much - Google is doing everyone a favor and not selling 2 year old hardware.
