The wait for one of the most hotly anticipated Android devices in recent months is nearly over. Verizon has announced that the Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE will be available at Verizon stores in tomorrow, December 15th for $299.

That is, of course, an on-contract price for the device, which Verizon will deck out with mobile hotspot service for an additional $20.

The Galaxy Nexus will run Google’s new Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system, sport an impressive 4.7-inch 1280 × 720 Super AMOLED HD display and will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4460 processor.

On top of that, it will include 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, support for NFC, a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and will be 4G LTE equipped on Verizon’s network.
