Have an extra grand to spare? How about buying a CDMA Samsung GALAXY Nexus from Craig's List?

So what do you get for 10 C notes? How about an unlocked 32GB Samsung GALAXY Nexus with a custom ROM, unlocked bootloader and clockwork recovery. The omission of the Verizon logo on the back can be attributed to the fact that this is a test model of the phone. And while it looks as though the phone will rollout with Android 4.1 installed, the Android 4.0 build on this device can be explained by the fact that the phone has a custom ROM installed.
Once Verizon launches the device, the $1,000 price will go down. But then again, you won't be able to carry one around town and grab the attention and envy of everyone you meet. If that is worth $1,000 to you, go for it!

The phone has now been removed from Craig's List. It has possibly been sold, or perhaps Samsung and/or Verizon brought out the legal beagles.

Yup, a thousand bucks for a phone that will become forgotten by February and when CES rolls around.

I don't know why sheep say new android phones will be forgotten. Even if it is its still better than the The iPhone and it will get updates perfectly on time. Also even though some android updates come late the phone still works perfectly fine and the average person wont even know a difference.
