After a long and arduous wait, Verizon has finally announced availability and pricing of its own Galaxy Nexus variant. Eager Galaxy Nexus shoppers will be able to get the smartphone either in Verizon Wireless stores or online tomorrow, December 15th, for $299 on two year contract or $650 off contract. Online ordering will begin at 1:00 AM eastern time on the 15th as well.

Details about the Verizon LTE enabled variant remain the same as what we've known before, and comes with 32 GB of NAND as opposed to the 16 GB GSM variant we've seen abroad and are working on reviewing now. As suspected, we've also learned that the LTE enabled Galaxy Nexus on Verizon uses the same combination of basebands as the Droid Charge, a Samsung CMC221 for LTE and Via Telecom 7.1 for 1x/EVDO.

    The Droid Charge for its LTE baseband uses CMC220, which is the same as the Stratosphere, so the CMC221 is hopefully something newer and improved.

    Yet has a GPU that's almost 2 years old coupled with a very high resolution display.

    This is $150 on amazonwireless right now. If you love it for $299, you'll really love it for $149.99.

    on the Droid 4? I still have a thing for hardware keyboards and actually think the hardware will be a sliver better. Thoughts?
