If you need a reason to buy the Verizon version of Galaxy Nexus, we are here to give you three strong reasons. The first is a brand new price drop down to a penny at Amazon Wireless. Perhaps the best price you may ever seen on this device. The second reason is that the Galaxy Nexus line is running the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Finally, the phone is guaranteed to receive an update to Android 4.2 when it finally drops.
Where is the catch? The deal for Galaxy Nexus for one cent requires signing up new two-year contract on Verizon. Customers that are looking to upgrade their existing contract can still score the deal for $29.99.
