Google updates Verizon Nexus page, 32 GB internal storage is back
For those of you pining away for the latest Nexus phone to arrive on Verizon, it’s been a roller-coaster of rumors the last few days. Perhaps the most disheartening was when Google updated its product pages and eliminated the 32 GB model of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, leaving only a 16 GB version.

Much panic ensued on enthusiast sites – many consumers feel that the lack of removable storage isn’t a big deal as long as a generous amount of internal storage is provided. After all, iPhone owners have been making this tradeoff for years. But the specter of only having 16 GB of internal storage had many people questioning whether this would be enough.

Worry no more, as Google has once again updated their product pages. Not only has the 32 GB model returned, but there’s no mention of a 16 GB version. Combined with the fact that Verizon field-test units are reported to have 32 GB of internal storage, it looks like a good bet that this will be one of the differentiating features of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Google’s product page also confirms the larger battery size that had been rumored – the LTE-enabled Verizon model will have an 1850mAH battery instead of the 1750mAH version in the GSM model.

There may be one more differentiator for the Verizon model: the name. As reported earlier, both Amazon and Best Buy have now been caught referring to the Verizon model as the Nexus Prime. Nothing is official until we hear an announcement, but the Nexus Prime name was quite popular so it's not unthinkable that Verizon would want to use it.

What are you most excited about, the extra storage, the bigger battery, or the possible return of the Nexus Prime name? Let us know in the comments below!
