The most highly-anticipated Android phone ever has finally hit Verizon shelves. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system will sell for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement, according to Verizon. The phone is one of several on the network to take advantage of its speedy 4G LTE data stream, which reportedly features download speeds of 5-12 MB per second and upload speeds of 2-5. 4G LTE is currently available in 190 cities according to Verizon, covering over 200 million Americans.
Release dates for this phone have been as elusive as Santa Claus on Christmas eve. Since Thanksgiving there have been reports and rumors of U.S. release dates which came and went with no phone. It is the first phone to run on Android 4.0. The handset was released in the UK in mid-November and a few weeks later in Canada, but Americans were left without access unless they ordered a high-priced unlocked version from overseas.
