Verizon Wireless first launched the Samsung Galaxy Nexus last year for $299.99, where you use it with a two-year agreement, which is pretty much the standard operating procedure for the previous few big smartphone releases. Considering how the Samsung Galaxy S3 is just under a month away from its release, Verizon intends to free up some space on their store shelves and decided to drop the price of the Galaxy Nexus by $50 from its current $199.99 contract price. This price cut would mean it will cost less than half the price of the original, and this particular discount is made available for online transactions only.

Just to recap, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is not exactly that outdated when you think about it, where it features a 4.65-inch 720p Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 316ppi. Under the hood, you will find a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor accompanied by 1GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, a lack of a microSD memory card slot, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash with an aperture of f/2.8. Not only that, you can also shoot video in 1080p at 30fps, sporting 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.

Would you mind carrying a slightly older smartphone just to save some money, or must you settle for the best of the lot at all times?
