With a couple of high-end Verizon LTE handsets coming out recently, you might have thought that Big Red has settled on $299.99 as the final price. Our wallets weren’t very happy with those realities but that was the price to pay, and some expected that the upcoming Samsung Gala Nexus won’t stray from that unwritten tradition.
much more affordable $199.99. The URL of the ad also hints at an early release date on November 29th, which contradicts earlier talk about the Galaxy Nexus hitting shelves only around Decebmer 8th.Yet it seems to do - wonderously, the Galaxy Nexus has started appearing in an ad showing up on various Android-centric website and claiming that the price will be set at the
Now, we don’t know about the release date, but the ads seem legit. Android Police dug up the source - NetShelter, which happens to be an ad network working directly with carriers and phone makers. Serious business, in other words. Now, it might have arrived just a tad bit earlier as clicking the “Learn more” button doesn’t lead to the Galaxy Nexus but rather to Verizon’s Holiday deals page.
For the time being, we have no other details, but we’ll update you as soon as we learn more. Hit the source link below to see the ad for yourself and let us know how this somewhat surprising $100 difference in the price is important for you.

The price change would make it so much easier to justify!

Good move by Verizon/Samsung if the model has 32GB storage - maybe if it goes to 1c before my 30 days is up, I would trade it for my RAZR.....NAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

as much as i want this phone and really want to think this is true.i'll believe it when i see it!! i got told (and a friend of mine was there as well) to my face by a verizon employee that the galaxy nexus would launch on the 21st! this is another case of just another date to get excited about..then angry as hell when it doesn't launch.i'll be off contract with verizon on 12/3 so i'm waiting until then,after that i'm done and i'll hold on to my phone and wait for the galaxy s3 (i don't care if it is april/may) and import it first day and go month to month on at&t.

i hope you are right for your sake if you want one but all the signs are pointing to it being a verizon only phone here in the states. in the fox business clip the guy as much as said so without just coming out and saying so. if you didn't see it search it and watch it and see if that is what you get out of it..i certainly did. without watching it again i believe he says that the s2 (the worlds best selling smartphone) is available on the other u.s carriers and with the galaxy nexus that verizon will have the galaxy brand too.i think if it was going to available on all carriers even if there was a period of verizon exclusivity he would have said so. just my 2cents
