The price of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has been slashed at Best Buy for a limited time.
The deal, first discovered by PhoneArena, has the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon’s 4G LTE network available for absolutely nothing on-contract.
Best Buy will apparently be offering this deal through August 25th though it’s possible that it might extend the deal further if the device sells well marked down at this price.
The retailer’s price cut comes shortly after Verizon itself knocked the device down to a mere $99.99 on-contract through its online store.
Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been out since December of 2011 and it should come as no surprise that the price is dropping to a more affordable price especially now that so many good Android smartphones are on the market.
And while the Galaxy Nexus is old, it remains one of the better Android devices on the market with its HD display, speedy processor, 4G LTE data speeds and its software which remains at Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the time being.
The Verizon Galaxy Nexus update will be getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at some point, though it’s unclear when that software might arrive.
The device is supposedly part of an initial batch of devices set to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update but so far, Verizon has remained mum on any sort of a release date.
Once the software does go live, it will make an already great device even better, something that makes this offer from Best Buy even more appetizing.
