As expected, Verizon has officially dropped the price of the Galaxy Nexus, the flagship Google Android device, from $299, down to $199 (with a new 2-year contract). The Galaxy Nexus is now the same price as a few other LTE device Verizon, like the HTC Rezound and LG Spectrum, both which offer 720p HD displays.
The drop in price may have resulted from the fact that Verizon’s rival, Sprint, is now offering the same device for only $199, which just went on sale yesterday (4/22). But despite the drop in price, the Galaxy Nexus is still a premium device, offering LTE speeds, a 720p HD display, 32GB of internal storage and of course, it runs a pure Google version of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
