Last month, we were treated with the announcement that Sprint’s Nexus S 4G would be releasing on May 8 (today), and surely, the Sprint version of Google’s phone is now available for purchase. As expected, the device is going for $199.99 on a two-year contract, or $549.99 without. This is $100 more than T-Mobile’s Nexus S, but Sprint’s Google phone does have 4G. Best Buy is actually offering it for $149.99 on a two-year contract, taking it a bit easier on your wallet.
Whether 4G radios are worth $100 (or $50) to you or not, it does not take away from the fact that it is nice to have a Nexus device available for more carriers. Though the GSM Nexus S is unlocked, 3G speeds were only possible through T-Mobile, which meant that AT&T customers were stuck on edge. Just the fact that the Nexus S made the jump to CDMA is a big step, and it is always good to have options, even though some may seem unfair.
There you go, Sprint users, the Nexus S 4G is finally here. Who is going for the “pure Google experience”?
