Now is the Perfect time to buy a Galaxy Nexus being that Verizon has dropped the on contract price to $50. It could also be argued that this is the worst time to purchase a Galaxy Nexus since it is expected that Google will announce the next Nexus in October and whatever that ends up being will be available in early to mid November. Then again if you are up for an update now and $199 – $299 is more work than it would be worth to convince your wife, you should have no problem getting her to agree to $50 for a new smartphone. This has arguably been one of the best devices of 2012 and is already running Jelly Bean even though most of the newer more expensive phones are not. Get it while its hot!
