It appears that Verizon has decided to play a cruel trick on those waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as the carrier has announced that the white version of the Motorola Droid RAZR will be launching tomorrow, December 15th, for $299 on-contract. If you recall, December 15th is the date that many, us included, have pegged for the launch of the Galaxy Nexus.
The white Droid RAZR, as we’ve told you before, is the exact same device as the black model. It just has a different paint job. Same hardware, same software, same exorbitant on-contract price.
In addition, the carrier has announced that customers buying the white Droid RAZR can take $100 off of a new Droid Xyboard tablet. Both will require a two year contract if you wish to take advantage of that offer.
Even though the carrier has made the white Droid RAZR official for the 15th, it’s still possible that the Galaxy Nexus will launch tomorrow as well.
Yeah, we’re optimistic.
