In what might be a precursor to the introduction of a new Nexus Device, Verizon has begun clearing inventory of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, including selling Certified Pre-Owned devices off contract for the low low price of $229.99.

That price beats out the Google Play store carrier unlocked GSM version of the device, so even though it is slightly “used” it is definitely a deal on a solid phone. The plus side is that as a certified pre-owned device you get a 1 year warranty on the device keeping you safe from any potential “manufacturer” defects (not that we’ve encountered any with our Galaxy Nexus).

Regardless if you’re in the market for a pure Google experience device and don’t want to re-up with a new contract and potentially lose your “unlimited data” plan this is certainly a good way to go!
