The carrier will sell the device for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
Outside of being the first smartphone to have the official Android 4.0, the Galaxy nexus will have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with 1280x768 resolution and dual cameras 1.3/5 MP. The phone has a curved design, is 9.47mm thin and has an impressive no-shutter lag camera.
Additionally, the phone has NFC support and Verizon LTE support, which is good for 190 markets and 200 million people. Verizon says average download speeds are 5 to 12 Mbits and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbits.
The Nexus also is the first device to have Android Beam, Google's use of NFC to share apps, games and other files with other Android users.
When you purchase the device, you will need a minimum $39.99 monthly cell service and a smartphone data package starting at $30 monthly access for 2 GB of data from Verizon.
