Even though it has been out for a while now, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-touting Galaxy Nexus by Samsung is taking its time making the rounds to the smaller carriers. In two days, on Friday, February 3, WIND Mobile will start offering it for $249 on a WINDtab+ plan.
WIND offers eligible customers a line of credit—up to $150 for WINDtab, more for WINDtab+—to help with the purchase of their device. Instead of waiving part of the cost of the phone, only to stick you with it and possibly more should you break your contract, WIND’s contactless solution is a rather refreshing take on things.
So you can obtain that Galaxy Nexus for only $249 without a contract, though you are still liable for the full cost of the phone if you discontinue service before it’s paid off. Since this is more of a leak than an announcement, we do not have full details, but it’s safe to assume that we’ll be seeing that beautiful 4.65-inch screen in all of its HD Super AMOLED glory, 1.2Ghz of processing power, your choice of either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and all the usual other goodies.
