You probably know by now that Verizon has finally begun selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for $299 on a two year plan, or you can grab it for $199 on Amazon now. Early reviews are positive, to say the least. Despite Samsung’s persistent Apple-bashing, mostly poking fun at long lines that form on iPhone launch day, they might not be able to keep it up with BGR reporting lines are already starting to form at Verizon stores in Boston and elsewhere.  And this only 12 hours after the device was officially announced.

There certainly isn’t the frenzy of excitement that usually accompanies a new iPhone or iPad launch, but it’s still a good sign that the Galaxy Nexus might be the first Android device to create somewhat of a cult following similar to Apple’s handsets. We’re sure Samsung isn’t too upset about the lines… Another shot via Phandroid below:

    "So much for Samsung's bashing of iPhone line sitters"?

    Samsung bashed the iPhone line sitters because, according to Samsung, they're waiting in line for an inferior product, not just because they're waiting in line.

    BTW– I've been an iPhone user since the original came out. Got my GN yesterday (no line), and it's absolutely phenomenal. I really have nothing against Apple, but I already know I'm never going back.
