In case you want to buy Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Best Buy is making an offer you cannot refuse. The smartphone is available free of cost at the retailer on a two-year service agreement with Verizon Wireless.
Reports about Best Buy's $0 Samsung Galaxy Nexus deal surfaced online Monday (July 30) morning. Other retailers are also offering the smartphone at discounted prices. However, Best Buy is the only known retailer to offer the smartphone at $0 both for new users and contract upgrades.
The $0-deal comes a week after Verizon slashed Galaxy Nexus's price to $99 on a two-year service commitment. The smartphone's price at Verizon's website is still $99.
The Galaxy Nexus is touted to be one of the best sellers at Verizon Wireless. It is the first smartphone to sport HD display. In addition, it is also the first smartphone to run the two latest versions of Android operating system - Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. However, while it is currently rolling out for international users, Verizon's US customers have to wait a bit longer to receive the official Jelly Bean update.
In case you do not have a problem in voiding a device's warranty, some sneaky ways to run Jell Bean on Verizon Galaxy Nexus are available. Folks at CyanogemMod just added Verizon's Galaxy Nexus offering to the CM10 party. The build is in early stages and few bugs are expected. However, folks at XDA Developers forum are offering a stable build for the device. Nevertheless, we never recommend users to root their devices.
If you are interested in buying the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it is the right time to grab the Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone from Best Buy. Amazon Wireless is also offering the device for free, but the offer is limited to new users only.
