Anyone waiting on a solid chance to upgrade to the Sprint Galaxy Nexus should look Amazon’s way. They’re offering the phone $50 cheaper than it’s on-contract MSRP, making it $150 for any new customer or any customer upgrading. The discount is an eye-popper, but who doesn’t love the chance to save as much money as they can? It can help ease the pain of any activation fees you might incur, and at least you get free two-day shipping on top of that. If all of this sounds like something you don’t want to pass up, head to Amazon.
