Today we have some good news for those interested in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.  According to the product page on Verizon’s website, the Galaxy Nexus’s price has been reduced to $99 on a two year contract.  For individuals looking to save on a high quality smartphone, or those interested in a Pure Google device, the $99 price tag is great news.

Generally, it’s hard to tell what prompted a price cut, but given the Galaxy Nexus’ age and position among other high-end devices, it is time for it to become a little bit more affordable and therefore appealing.  With the Galaxy S III running rampant across much of the world, many customers still want an official Nexus device that will receive Android updates before everyone else. Verizon didn’t deliver the latest version of Android until months after the HSPA+ version, and it still hasn’t officially delivered Android 4.1 to the Galaxy Nexus, but it’s probably going to happen before other devices.
