Now Network picks up Google’s Galaxy Nexus

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google’s Galaxy Nexus is getting another CDMA release, with the Now Network picking up the LTE-enabled 4G Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone. Up for pre-order from today, priced at $199.99 – and thus undercutting Verizon by a hundred bucks – the Galaxy Nexus will support Google Wallet when it begins shipping on April 22 and, for those who sign up quickly, include $50 of free cash to spend, Slashgear reported.

Register a Google Wallet account within a week of activation and Google Wallet will be instantly credited with $10. Three weeks later, a further $40 will drop into the account. Otherwise it’s the same Galaxy Nexus.

That means the same 4.65-inch – and slightly curved – 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD touchscreen, the same 5-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording, and the same WiFi b/g/n and Android 4.0 ICS OS. The CDMA/LTE model is slightly thicker than the HSPA+ version on sale in Europe, but the benefit is a slightly bigger battery too.
