Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus is $650 off contract

Nexus3

Happy Verizon Galaxy Nexus day, everyone! I know that a lot of you have been waiting so long for this day to come; quite honestly, I have been too. Even as a relatively die-hard iPhone user, I still love other operating systems and plenty of other phones. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is just the one I desire the most. 

If you've waited this long for the newest Nexus, you probably did it because you wanted to be on Verizon. But even though you chose the device and the carrier, there's one last thing you've gotta think about: on-contract or off? 

If you choose to sign a contract with Verizon, you'll get the Nexus into your hands for $299. If you don't sign one, though, you'll be paying $650 for the device, but you won't be locked down to any contract and you'll be able to leave Verizon whenever you want. 

Of course, the whole reason for waiting for a Verizon-compatible Galaxy Nexus is to use the device on Verizon. In my opinion, just going for the subsidized handset is better. Of course, people always have their own opinions on this issue; I'd like to know what you're going to do. Let me know in the comments!
