Samsung Galaxy Nexus, one of the first devices to be launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, is now slated for a Jelly Bean upgrade.
In fact, Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices have already received the latest version of Android operating system via software update.
Unfortunately, some carrier-bounded Galaxy Nexus models have yet to be updated to Jelly Bean. However, Google promised that Galaxy Nexus
, Nexus S and Motorola XOOM would be among the first to get a Jelly Bean upgrade in the following weeks.
Although the first device to be shipped with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, Google Nexus 7, is selling like crazy due to its low price, it appears that other devices that have been promised the same platform through OTA (over the air) update are now subject to great deals.
In this regard, Best Buy has recently kicked off a promotional offer for Verizon Galaxy Nexus, so customers can now grab this one for free.
Obviously, those who want to take advantage of this deal will have to commit to a new two-year agreement. Customers who are eligible for upgrade can also get the Galaxy Nexus for free.
Otherwise, Verizon Galaxy Nexus can be purchased at Best Buy for $599.99 USD (490 EUR) outright. Check it out here
. Keep in mind that Best Buy estimates it will ship the smartphone in 2-5 business days, which means stock is dwindling.
Verizon’s version of Galaxy Nexus comes with LTE support
and a dual-core processor packed at 1.2 GHz. In addition, the smartphone has 32GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM. The amount of storage cannot be further expanded due to the fact that Galaxy Nexus lacks microSD card slot.
The hyper-vibrant 4.65-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and features oleophobic coating.
