Walmart selling Galaxy Nexus for $1
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now said to be available for $1 on contract at Walmart. The news emerged in a post on social news site Reddit, where a user posted a picture of the device on sale. The $1 price tag is contingent upon signing up for a new two-year account or committing to an additional two years on an existing account. The Galaxy Nexus offered connects to Verizon's 4G LTE network and runs Android 4.0, though an upgrade is available to Android 4.1. Without a contract, the device retails for $700. [via Phandroid]
