Verizon to put Galaxy Nexus at same 300 as others

A new leak supports notions that the Galaxy Nexus will cost $300 on contract. The tip to the Wall Street Journal didn't say more than to give the two-year price and have the phone on shelves in December. The price was expected given Verizon's typical policy of pricing phones like the HTC Rezound or Motorola Droid RAZR at the same level.

The pricing is high but also reflects the high prices of current-generation LTE smartphones. Officially, Verizon is giving about a $350 subsidy on the RAZR and Rezound. On AT&T, most top-tier phones with or without 3G, including the iPhone 4S, are discounted by about $450.

Through other leaks, Verizon is believed to launching its Android 4.0 flagship as soon as December 8 or 9, or slightly later than the Canadian release of the HSPA+ model.
