MAP Leak Shows Verizon Getting Competitive On Galaxy Nexus Price

Earlier this week, Sprint formally announced the launch plans for its Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which so far has only been available to US smartphone users at a subsidized price from Verizon. Verizon’s been selling that model at a premium $300 on-contract, so the news that Sprint’s version of the phone, with the same 32GB of storage, would be available for a hundred dollars less seemed like a good way to steal a few sales from Verizon. Sprint may not end up getting that break after all, as a newly-leaked Verizon MAP list shows an upcoming price break for the Galaxy Nexus.

Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus goes up for sale this Sunday, April 22. According to this leak, one day later, on April 23, Verizon will reduce pricing on its GNex down to match Sprint’s $200 on-contract tag.

Considering that Sprint is launching the phone with its LTE network still not in operation, this sounds like bad news for the carrier. We could see customers rationalizing the delay in 4G service by thinking about what they were saving on the phone by going with Sprint, but without that incentive, the argument for Sprint’s version becomes harder to make. Sure, you get official Google Wallet support, and there’s Sprint unlimited data, but we have a feeling that many potential customers just aren’t going to be able to see past the 4G issue for now.

Galaxy Nexus Accessories Finally Start Arriving

Galaxy Nexus Accessories Finally Start Arriving

Galaxy Nexus Accessories Finally Start Arriving

As owners of the Galaxy Nexus who swooped-up the phone as soon as it landed are all-too aware, the family of accessories promised by Samsung have been long overdue. We recently started to gain hope that that they’d finally see the light of day soon, with expected release dates for some of the accessories posted for early next week. It looks like after all the waiting that Samsung finally managed to get the gear ready a little ahead of schedule, with the i515 Pogo Desktop Dock now available for sale direct from the manufacturer.

The dock’s spring-loaded pogo pins let you easily drop your handset down into it without fumbling with any cables. An audio-out jack gives you the option to listen to music through a larger speaker system while your Galaxy Nexus charges. For that functionality, Samsung’s asking $90. It’s a bit steep for what it is, but we’re sure the convenience of drop-in charging will appeal to at least some users. With any luck, we’ll see the price drop to a more reasonable level in the future.
