Confirmed, Verizon will start selling the Verizon Galaxy Nexus tomorrow alongside the white Droid RAZR.
Aside from bringing the 4G LTE to more cities and towns, Verizon Wireless is reportedly set to release the first Android 4.0 smartphone in the United States starting on Thursday, December 15, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus alongside the white Motorola Droid RAZR which is set to hit brick and mortar stores and online sporting the same tag price.
Apparently, the white Motorola Droid RAZR was first announced today, and Verizon is still not publishing an official press release regarding the Galaxy Nexus.
For starters, the Motorola Droid RAZR is not an Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone, but Motorola said it will push an update early next year. The phone is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD screen, and includes two cameras, the 8-megapixel back camera and an “HD” front-facing camera.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is powered by almost the same 1.2GHz dual-core SoC, 1GB of RAM, featuring an HD Super AMOLED 4.65 inch screen and Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, free from custom user interface.
The Motorola Droid RAZR and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus are sporting the same tag price, $299.99 on contract with additional charges and additional data smartphone plan. However, Verizon will launch a promo tomorrow to attract more Droid RAZR customers with the $100 off for the Droid XyBoard Android tablet for every phone with 2 year plan purchase.
Update: Verizon issues a press release.
