What treasures lurk beneath the surface of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus? Well, erm, broadly the same ones that we saw when the HSPA+ version was torn down back in November. Big Red's version carries a smaller microSIM slot (it's also moved), presumably to cram in the Silicon Motion FCI FC8870 CDMA/EV-DO/LTE unit that's suddenly appeared on the motherboard. Check out the full teardown at the source link below, but be warned -- spilled Ice Cream Sandwiches always result in ant infestation.

*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
