Will the price be right for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus?
The story, in the financial paper's All Thing's D column, points out that Verizon has pretty much solidified $299.99 as the price for its 4G LTE models, which would cover the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. And don't forget that Verizon's recent MAP list shows a minimum advertised price of $299.99 for the GALAXY Nexus. However, the prices posted on the MAP list are not official launch figures.
The carrier charged the $299.99 subsidized price for the Motorola DROID RAZR, the Motorola DROID BIONIC, and the HTC Rezound, all requiring a signed two-year pact. So the bottom line is that Big Red has kept the $199.99 subsidized pricing for 3G models like the Apple iPhone 4S and the Motorola DROID 3, even though both are dual-core phones. On the other hand, once we start talking about smartphones with an LTE radio, the price goes up. Consider that the carrier charged $299.99 on contract for the Samsung Droid Charge. This model does support LTE, but has a single-core 1GHz processor under the hood.
So based on all of this evidence, it would seem that the Samsung GALAXY Nexus would be offered by Verizon at the $299.99 price point. Of course, it would also seem that Verizon customers are getting impatient and are demanding a launch date for the first Android 4.0 handset.
