A holiday-themed Flash ad makes it appear that, the phone that's , will cost $199.99 through Verizon.
The phone has gone, but has yet to appear in the United States. The phone has a large 4.65-inch touch screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 1080p videocamera and 720p screen, and 4G LTE speeds on Verizon's wireless network, but its most notable feature is the next-gen operating system from Google.
Android Police spotted the ad, noting that it points to a Verizon special offers page. That could mean that the Galaxy Nexus might not always have a $200 price tag; the same ad promotes the $149.99 Stratosphere for a price of $99.99 and the $199.99 Droid Charge for a price of $99.99.
Needless to say, those prices require a two-year contract whose monthly fees ultimately will dwarf the original purchase price.
Verizon will, Samsung has said.
The Galaxy Nexus can be had for anywhere from free to 169 pounds ($) from the initial U.K. sales partner, Phones4U, with varying two-year contracs. Outside the U.S., though, the phone supports only 3G networking and has 16GB of flash memory, compared to LTE and 32GB in the Verizon incarnation.
