Galaxy Nexus NFC smartphone set to hit Verizon for $199 on 8th December?
When the Galaxy Nexus NFC smartphone is going to be released and for how much has been a mystery. However, recent leaks may have finally found the answers to those questions. The much anticipated NFC smartphone was caught on a flash ad that was released early by mistake, and it showed the Galaxy Nexus priced at $199.99 on a two year contract. That ad was seen on Android Police, Phandroid and Droid Forums. It was also reported by Engadget, which suggests it’s a little more definite than a simple anomaly. That same ad linked to a page that was unavailable and the URL and the title to that page contained a date of the 29th of November, which we think may be when the Ice Cream Sandwich NFC smartphone may be given its official release date.
Release date for the NFC totting Galaxy Nexus finally confirmed?
That release date is likely to be December 8th, according to another leak picked up by BGR which shows the Galaxy Nexus on a Verizon chart complete with date. Google announced that we would see the Galaxy Nexus NFC smartphone in November when they announced the phone last month. That target release timeline is now looking highly unlikely and Verizon has been far from communicative about the actual release date despite MNOs the world over announcing when the phone would be released.
Droid Life reported they had received a leaked comparison chart that shows the Galaxy Nexus with 32GB of internal memory, which is likely to please Verizon customers who have so far only seen reviews featuring the 16GB HSPA+ version of the handset.
The Galaxy Nexus release has been full of bad tips and hearsay, so we wouldn’t hold our breathe at this point. Although, that said, Verizon will have to release it soon and then we can all play with some NFC Android Beam goodness.
