The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the newest and best Android smartphone we've ever used (read our review here), had a few key facts kept under wraps for a surprisingly long time, most importantly price and release date. Official word just came in last night: the Nexus is on sale at Verizon stores today (Thursday), at a price of $300, all of which is about as expected.

The Nexus has 32GB of non-replaceable storage, so it's priced on par with phones like the iPhone 4S. You'll need a 4G plan, since the Nexus uses Verizon's frankly awesome 4G LTE network.
