[DEAL ALERT] Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus Now Free!

By  | 

You will have heard a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus whether you plan on getting it or not. It didn’t have the best specs on a handset when it was launched, however with the Nexus name it is very easy to unlock, root and put on a custom ROM. It also gets hold of the latest Android update well ahead of non-Nexus devices. These two things were what drew in people.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus practically free on contract with Amazon

Now it is on a great deal and if you are looking for an Android handset that is decent and doesn’t break the bank, this may be it. If you are a new customer to Verizon then you will be able to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for just $0.01 via Amazon with a contract. If you are already with Verizon then you will have to pay $29.99, which is still a great deal.

What’s even better is that for this low price you will get your hands on a device that runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1. It should also get the update to Android 4.2 before many other devices that cost more money.

On a side note, with the LG Nexus 4 practically revealed already, if you want a Nexus device with better hardware then you should wait until the end of the month when LG is rumored to announce the device.
