The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has received yet another price drop on Verizon, bringing the total cost down to $99.99 with a two-year contract – provided you buy it online. If you prefer to pick up your devices in person, you’ll have to go without the $50 online discount, bringing the actual total up to $149.99 on contract. This marks the second time since launch that the device has received a price cut from its initial $299.99 MSRP.
The Galaxy Nexus, of course, was the first Android device to come preinstalled with Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich.” Our sister site, Pocketables, reviewed the device and was very impressed by the quality. “It ranks up there with the very best smartphones available right now,” said Aaron Orquia. Of course, that was many months ago. In the time since then, numerous other Android devices have been released, including the Samsung Galaxy S III. But if you’re looking for a relatively cheap but high-quality Android device, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is hard to beat. Plus, you can always force install the latest Jelly Bean OTA on it.
