Per the Amazon wireless website, it appears that the offer is good for new customers and existing customers that’s willing to sign a contract extention or add a new line, and you can essentially have this recent release for free.
The Samsung Nexus was released by Verizon Wireless about half year ago. At the time, the Nexus was the first Android smartphone to be stocked with the ICS OS, and it was sold at $299 with 2 year contract. Today, you can find the phone selling at $649.99 at full retail, or $199.99 with 2 year contract on the Verizon Wireless website.
Samsung Nexus is a 4G LTE compatible phone that was upgraded to the latest Android 4.0.4 OS just this week. Running on 1.2 Ghz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor with a 4.65 HD LED display, stocked with 1GB ram. The connectivities incldue a microUSB that can be used to connect to TV via HDMI, bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n/a WiFi, USB 2.0, 1750 mAh battery, and 5MP front/1.3MP back cameras.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date
It is likely not a coincidence that Verizon Wireless and Amazon is running this amazing deal just ahead of the pre-release of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3 tomorrow. The S3 will be available for pre-order at Verizon Wireless tomorrow (with no official release date announced). Sprint and T-Mobile have also announced the official release date for the S3 on June 21st. It makes sense to shed some existing inventory to make room for the new product. The 16GB is expected to sell for $199 on a 2 year contract and $249 for the 32GB version. Basic specs include a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor by Qualcomm, 4.8 inch HD display, 2GB ram, and 8MP back/1.9MP front cameras.
If you prefer to wait and willing to spend $199.98 more, then you should wait out the 2 weeks and get the S3, it’s been one of the most highly anticipated Samsung released in awhile, along with the HTC One X (June 10th release by AT&T for $199.99). But if you have been itching to get the Samsung Nexus, you won’t find a better deal than this.
