Verizon to cut Nexus price to match Sprint

Verizon is planning to quickly follow up on the Sprint Galaxy Nexus launch with a steep price drop. A leaked minimum advertised price guide at Droid-Life has Samsung's Android 4.0 phone dropping to the same $200 on April 23, a day after Sprint stores get their examples. While it could be a storage cut ike the 16GB RAZR, it's more likely to remain the 32GB edition.

The Sprint and Verizon editions are identical in hardware and share the 4.65-inch, 720p display, the fast five-megapixel back camera and front 1.3-megapixel camera, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and LTE-based 4G. They share NFC for short-range wireless features like Android Beam, although only the Sprint model will have official Google Wallet support to make mobile payments without a third-party app.

Other tips in the price guide show that the RAZR line will no longer require a minimum price the day before, usually a sign that replacements are coming. Motorola's phone might be replaced by the Droid RAZR HD. Those wanting a Galaxy Tab 7.7 should see a price cut to $450 on April 23.
