Verizon has decided to drop the Galaxy Nexus to $0 if you’re willing to sign a new two year contract. This news comes after the largest wireless provider in the United States last week decided to cut the price down to $100 on a contract. The word is, the new deal is only valid at a retail store, as the $100 price tag still shows up on the company’s website.
A third party store like Best Buy has the deal, but if you don’t have the time to run over to your local retailer, then you’ll be happy to know that Amazon is also offering a similar bargain. The giant e-commerce’s wireless side, Amazon Wireless, is going one step further. Not only is the company offering the Galaxy Nexus for free (new contracts), but it’s showing some love to existing customers by giving the phone away for a $50 upgrade.
That being said, this second consecutive price drop in a week, is pretty much confirming my premonitions of the phone soon being discontinued. However, this phone is still adored around the tech world, because at the moment, it’s the only handset on the market that offers Google’s latest mobile operating system version called Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
