Well, isn’t this one helluva deal. If you, or someone you know, is on Verizon and currently in the market for a new smartphone, you could do a whole lot worse than the Galaxy Nexus. Right now “old reliable” is being offered up on Verizon Wireless for $230 OFF-contract.

That’s right, but there is one catch. The units being sold at this heavily discounted price are “certified pre-owned/refurbished” units. But no worries, these devices come with the peace of mind knowing they’ve passed through 100+ quality checkpoints and are backed with a full 1 year warranty. Something goes wrong during the first year — Verizon will replace it with a “comparable unit.” Just don’t got complaining about battery life or a wonky LTE connection, apparently those are just features found in the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus.

We all have that one friend with a device that looks like it should be on life support. Now nobody should have an excuse to upgrade, and experience the wonderful world of Jelly Bean.
