Verizon announces the Samsung GALAXY Nexus
As you may recall, earlier this week Motorola showcased the new DROID RAZR for Verizon Wireless. Even though the device has a lot going for it, such as the dual core processor and Kevlar backing, some of its thunder was stolen by Samsung unveiling the highly anticipated GALAXY Nexus in Hong Kong.

At that time, Samsung said there would be a 4G LTE version of the GALAXY Nexus, but neglected to say which carrier it would be for. Now we can drop all the speculation, as Verizon has officially announced they will be offering the Samsung GALAXY Nexus "later this year", though we're guessing it will be in November.

Unfortunately, Verizon happens to leave out what the price of the GALAXY Nexus will be, and if they will be carrying the 16GB or 32GB version (or both) - as the phone will not have a microSD memory card slot.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, it is the first smartphone to run on Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich, which offers an updated user interface with better multitasking, notifications, browser, face unlocking, and Android beam. If that wasn't enough, the GALAXY Nexus will feature a large 4.65" 1280x720 HD Super AMOLED display (though it is PenTile), a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear autofocus camera with flash & 1.3MP front camera, 1080p video recording, NFC for use with Google Wallet, Bluetooth 3, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, and a 1750mAh battery.

Naturally, we can't wait to get our hands on the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, or the Motorola DROID RAZR, and see how well they stack-up next to each other.
