Sprint has just dropped us a note letting us know that the flagship Android 4.0 device, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be coming to the Now Network on April 22nd for $199.99. The Galaxy Nexus will be the second phone to feature support for Sprint’s 4G LTE network, which will be live in a handful of markets by the summer, and will cover some 120 million people by the end of 2012.
While we’re certainly a bit more excited about the upcoming Galaxy S III line, which will be unveiled in just a few short weeks, the Galaxy Nexus received exemplary scores when we reviewed the Verizon Wireless variant back in January and is a solid choice for any Sprint customer. When it launches next week, the Galaxy Nexus will be the best Android phone on Sprint’s network, and a smart upgrade for those of you anxiously awaiting the next big thing.
Preorders for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus are starting today, and you can reserve your Nexus by visiting the Sprint website. All Sprint customers who purchase the Galaxy Nexus will receive a $40 Google Wallet credit in addition to the $10 credit for activating Google Wallet, bringing it up to a total of $50 back in your pocket. Preorders will go out for delivery on/around launch day, set for this coming Sunday. Who out there is planning on picking up a Sprint-branded Galaxy Nexus, or are you holding out for the Galaxy S III or HTC Evo 4G LTE?
