Last week, rumors suggested Verizon would be dropping the on-contract MSRP for its Galaxy Nexus. The phone, once a $300 exclusive in America, can now be had for $200 after rebates and other applicable discounts.
It’s a pretty sensible move on Verizon’s part. Not only has the device been out for more than four months, but Sprint’s version of the device, which costs $200 and launched yesterday, likely pushed Verizon to make the change.
In any case, $100 is a nice price difference. If you were holding out for a more attractive price (even though third-party retailers have frequent sales for it), there’s no better time than now to get it straight from Big Read. [Verizon ]
