Debuting in Hong Kong just days ago, the hot Galaxy Nexus has been confirmed by Verizon Wireless for launch. The info is as official as it gets and it seems that the HD display smartphone will be available “later this year”, without a price tag or exact launch date being announced by the carrier.
Verizon Wireless will be among the first US carriers to sell the handset with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board and I expect that at least 3 more carriers will take it in their portofolios. I’m pretty sure that 4G LTE support will be available on this model, reaching speeds of up to 12 Mbps in the download section.
Other features worth mentioning are the 4.65 inch HD Super AMOLED display, the 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and 5MP camera with 1080p capture. Last I heard, the handset was going round with prices of about $700 – $800 through various carriers, of course unlocked. I guess that the price on Verizon will be around $299.99 with a Nationwide Talk plan beginning at $39.99 a month and a smartphone data package starting at $30.
