Galaxy Nexus gets a price slash to $349 at the Play Store, just in time for Jelly Bean

Considering that the handset will be first in line to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, this price for a dual-core phone with HD screen and no contract troubles sounds like a steal, leaving you money to add towards the purchase of a Google Nexus 7 tablet, to completely close the circle for the amount you'd otherwise spend on a SIM-free flagship phone alone...

Verizon's announcement last week that it would stop offering unlimited data plans on its subsidized phones triggered a firestorm of protest on a Phonearena forum last week. Some were determined to take their business to pay-as-you-go services. Google's announcement may open up another channel--good non-contract phones at reasonable prices. Here's to hoping that consumers enjoy real choices going forward.

No. Unless you buy it "off contract" from verizon for like 649. Which is pure BS. I wish that Google would open up the avenue for CDMA carriers given that they are all screwing on these stupid capped data plans now.

I do too but the CDMA thing is more complicated...No Sim cards, complicated flashing....Ehhh...That's why I dropped Sprint.

Other than it will be designed and/or approved by Google and run some version of Android, haven't heard anything.

The article states that the price was reduced by 10%. The phone was previously $399, now it's $349. That represents a reduction of roughly 12.5%. Even better!

Your math is correct, but think they just wanted to make it a nice, common, round number. Yeah I know, they could had said 12%.
