The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is currently king of the Android hill and the flagship phone for Verizon Wireless. It has a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED 720p display, a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, 32GB of storage, a 5MP camera that shoots 1080p video, 4G LTE speed, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and plenty more. And all of that running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the most advanced Android version. It is a sweet, sweet gizmo – I have one. But one thing it normally isn’t is inexpensive.
The normal rate through Verizon is $299.99 with a two-year commitment. But Amazon Wireless is now offering this top-end phone at a low-end price, just $99.99 for new subscribers with a two-year commitment. If you want to add a line to an existing family account it is just $179.99. And even those renewing can save with a $259.99 price. If you’ve been thinking about switching to Android and/or Verizon, this is a fantastic deal. Big savings on a killer phone. I’m extremely happy with mine.
In other Android news, my Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime arrived Tuesday. I haven’t had a lot of time to play with it, but so far I love it. I’m planning to take it on my extended trip starting next week, for my wedding and honeymoon, instead of my laptop.
