Thursday is Dec. 15 and you know what that means. The Galaxy Nexus release date has finally arrived.

The phone is now on sale and available for purchase through Verizon for $299.99. And, for a limited time only, you can double your data without paying a penny more when you purchase a new 4G LTE smartphone.

This base price is combined with a $75 coupon. To activate this deal, enter the code $75VZN at checkout.

With the purchase, a two-year contract is required but, with free overnight shipping, who could complain?

The Galaxy Nexus is the best Android smartphone to hit the market. Experience the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with 4.65 HD Super AMOLEDTM screen and optimized for Google+.

This has been one of the most highly anticipated smartphone releases since the iPhone 4S (which many thought would be the iPhone5).

The Verge reported that Amazon Wireless has a Galaxy Nexus offer of a $199.99 takeaway price, but the product is backordered eight to nine days.

The site also reported that LetsTalk is offering the smartphone for $154.99 with a new two-year contract.
