Galaxy Nexus unlocked direct from Google Play for $399

Google just created a new section in the Google Play ecosystem for selling devices, and the first such device available is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, unlocked, no-contract, for only $399! This is a really sweet deal, and I'm due for a new phone, so I was ready to pull the trigger, but...

Unfortunately, like many other cool new things, this isn't available in Australia :-(

I used TunnelBear to get past the IP country verification check, which got me through to the actual page and let me add the phone to my cart, but once you get to the checkout phase, you must login with your Google Wallet account, which uses the credit-card billing address to verify your country and lock you out:

So if anyone figures out how to order one of these from Australia, let me know!
