The Verizon Galaxy Nexus is now only $0.01 on Amazon Wireless.
Yes, that’s right, one of the best Android superphones can now be bought from Amazon for just a penny.
That is, however, if you are prepared to sign a new two-year contract with Verizon Wireless.
Nonetheless, this deal is not bad at all as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus still remains as one of the top Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones out there.
Add to that the fact that it’s pure ICS you’re getting and you have a great deal. This is particularly better for those who don’t want their Androids coated with user interfaces like Samsung does with TouchWiz and HTC does with Sense. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus is a “pure Android” experience.
Google and Samsung launched the Galaxy Nexus towards the end of last year. It features ICS right out of the box, along with a powerful dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen.
The Verizon Galaxy Nexus you’ll be getting for a cent on Amazon Wireless will have 4G connectivity, 32GB of onboard memory, a 5MP camera that shoots Full HD 1080p videos, Wi-Fi and GPS.
Weighing at 5.29 ounces and measuring 5.33 x 2.67 x 0.37 inches, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus with its curved glass screen is still one sexy smartphone.
It offers features of the Ice Cream Sandwich OS like Face Unlock which enables owners to unlock their phones using their face with the help of the 1.3MP front camera of the smartphone as well as advanced facial recognition technology.
Another nifty feature is Home Screen Folders to organize apps on the home screen giving users faster access to more organized apps.
Another celebrated feature of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is multitasking enabled by the Recent Apps button in the System Bar of ICS.
Voice Input lets users dictate text to their Verizon Galaxy Nexus device for a wide range hands-free of uses.
Furthermore, it runs on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, as well as EV-DO, Rev A 3G and CDMA 800/1900 frequencies where 4G LTE is not available.
This means that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus can download up to 5 to 12 megabytes of data per second and upload up to 2 to 5 megabytes of data per second. Couple this with Wi-Fi hotspot capability and you can use it as a gateway for other devices to access the web.
For those interested, we’re not sure until when this Verizon Galaxy Nexus deal on Amazon will run.
