Verizon stores sell out of Galaxy Nexus within hours, but Amazon has it for $149

Verizon store

We just returned from our local Verizon Wireless store where the Galaxy Nexus sold out within the first hour. The store we visited only received 30 units, but we overheard that more were arriving daily. If you missed out on the Galaxy Nexus in stores and still want to pick one up, Amazon has the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for $149 with 2-year contract, but you’ll have to wait 8-9 days for them to ship it out.

Other retailers where the Verizon Galaxy Nexus might be available include Best Buy, Costco, Radio Shack, Fry’s and other authorized resellers.

I’ve only had the phone for a couple hours, but as Anthony described earlier it’s the best Android phone available period. If you decide to pick up the phone, don’t forget to share your Galaxy Nexus launch story with us.
