After what seems like an eternity of rumors, leaks, and speculated launch dates, the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus is finally here at PhoneDog.  Available now for $299.99, Verizon's Galaxy Nexus packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD (720p) display, 5-megapixel camera with 1080p recording, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a 1,850 mAh battery, and 4G LTE connectivity.  The larger battery and 4G LTE connectivity are nice improvements over the international version, but the device is a bit thicker.  Will this be the blockbuster Android phone this holiday season?

Drew Page The camera is not that great, and the screen on the HTC ReZound is just as good.
Jon Strong

Andy Chen
Andy Chen like to, but stuck with Sprint for 2 years, hopefully comes to Sprint
James von Veit
James von Veit Yes, fedex overnighting it to me on the arm! I could write for a tech site given my knowhow and thirst for the latest must have device. The Nexus will debut beside my two other new Droid's: Razr, Bionic, X2 (mid-June), X (let my 2 yr old play learning apps); Both Incredibles, Fascinate, Palm Pre, Dare and an iPad 2. Once I get a quad core ASUS transformer tablet with keyboard I'll be good for a few months. Just kidding, hopefully a year. My wife went from Voyager to Droid 2, which she loved until my son tried to flush it down the toilet. Now she's ecstatic with the latest iPhone, which is essentially a dead ringer for her iPod Touch 4 running iOS 5 albeit without Siri. She thinks I am nuts and technically I may be. Nuts about technology!
Joe Vitale
Joe Vitale Nope...2 months ago, I would have, but now, I'll wait until CES2012 and 1st qtr of next year for my other choices. They missed the boat on this one. too little, too late for me. plus $299!?!? Kiss my ass!

Zach Cline It's not just a fucking phone. I'm so tired of seeing that. There's a reason why manufacturers say device and not "phone"
Joshua Kim
Joshua Kim 149.99 shipped. Who pays full price these days.
Paul Davis
Paul Davis 300 bucks for a fucking Verizon phone? Herpes does sound better before spending that much money. You people really need to wait a bit longer, the prices will drop when the other companies bring their phones out.

Josh Lazenby
Josh Lazenby Nah. Could have gotten one yesterday... but with the exception of the screen pixel density... the S2 is the better device. @Chris Don't say "your dumb" when you don't know what you're talking about. First of all ... it is "you're" not "your". Second, the S2 has a better CPU and GPU then the nexus.
Chris ToNy Lopez
Chris ToNy Lopez Your dumb the sgnex is way better that the galaxy s2 way way better
Jacob Grumbles
Jacob Grumbles Alex it because it doesn't need it . Galaxy s2 does because of the ios wannabe called touchwiz it has to run .
Alex Castro
Alex Castro my galaxy s2 is better then this, ICS might come as a stock build for the s2 too so we'll see who gets the upper hand then. Idk why they only gave it a 1.2 dual core....
