The Samsung GALAXY Nexus is now just $149.99 on contract at Verizon

Last December, Verizon launched the Samsung GALAXY Nexus for $299.99 with a signed two year pact. This has been Big Red's price for a number of high-end models when they first were released, such as the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. Now that the Samsung Galaxy S III is less than a month away from launching, Verizon needs to clear up some room on the its shelves and has cut the price of the first Ice Cream Sandwich flavored device by $50 from its current $199.99 contract price. That cut, part of Verizon's "Summer Sale" brings the price tag on the phone down to $149.99 or a tad less than half of the original price. The discount is available online only.

The Samsung GALAXY Nexus offers a 4.65 inch 720p Super AMOLED screen with pixel density of 316ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460  processor with 1GB of RAM on board. 32GB of native storage is included, although there is no microSD slot for further expansion. The 5MP camera has AF and an LED flash while coming with an aperture of f/2.8. Video is captured in 1080p at 30fps, the front-facing camera comes in at 1.3MP. There is 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.0 is installed out of the box.

While Verizon has merely cut the price on the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, Best Buy insiders tipped off Droid Life with the word that an "X" has been placed next to the supply code for the phone at the big box retailer, indicating that supply is not being re-ordered. That means it's curtains for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus at Best Buy. With the Samsung Galaxy S III moving in, how can anyone be surprised?
