Just in time for students looking to take a new smartphone back to school, Best Buy has made the Verizon Galaxy Nexus available for free on contract or to existing upgrade-eligible lines. Despite its relatively old age (by smartphone standards) and recent rumors of a successor, Google's Galaxy Nexus is still one of the best smartphones you can buy on Verizon thanks to its fast LTE connection, stock version of Android 4.0, and 720p display. Best Buy estimates that online orders will take two to five days to ship, but if you can't wait that long you can always go to a brick-and-mortar store — while they're still around.
