Amazon has apparently gone bonkers. And luckily, we’re just fine with that. Just a day after the retailer started offering up the newly released LG Spectrum, a 4G LTE smartphone on Verizon, for a mere $80, Amazon has now slashed the price of the coveted Samsung Galaxy Nexus down to a mere $100 with the signing of a new two-year contract.
Yeah, that’s a full $200 discount off of Verizon’s current asking price of $300 and it’s an absolute steal for a phone that many feel is the best Android phone ever to hit the market.
Unfortunately, the deal is only available to those of you who are willing to sign a new two-year contract. Those who are looking to upgrade need not apply. A shame considering this is the lowest price that the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus has seen yet.
So, if you can look past what I consider poor battery life and you don’t mind the possibility of having your handset randomly reboot, this is an offer worth taking a look at if you’re looking for a new smartphone.
This is a Nexus device which means that its easily customizable via rooting and unlocking the bootloader. It means that you’ll have a pristine, vanilla version of Android without the interference of a manufacturers user interface.
You’d be surprised at how nice that is.
And finally, you’ll have the latest and greatest version of Android, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, right out of the box.
