Ever wanted to get your hands on the “pure” Android phone called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus? Well until now you could get it two ways: through Verizon with a two year contract, through Sprint with a two year contract, or bought unlocked directly from the Google Play Store.  Well getting it from Google themselves may seem like the best way to go, you may not have the money to buy the phone at wholesale prices or you may already be on Verizon or Sprint    so you cannot use a GSM based phone.  Well for those not able to buy the unlocked version and on Verizon, Verizon has sweetened the deal to help get this amazing phone in your pocket.

Today Verizon has listed their 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for only $99!  For such a feature packed phone, $99 is an amazing deal.  There are some cons to the Verizon version though – Verizon has not been the best at pushing out the Android updates on time and there is Verizon bloatware on the “pure” Android device.

For the casual owner who likes to have a fast phone, this is for you.  If you want to always have the most up to date device out there, I suggest you switch carriers and buy the unlocked version because they already have the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update while the Verizon phones are still running Android 4.0.4 ICS.

Here is a quick list of the specs packed into the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus:

  • 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED contoured screen
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Runs on Verizon’s 4G LTE data network
