Sprint has officially announced its version of the Google Nexus S, dubbed Nexus S 4G, back in March. However, the one very important thing that was missing from that announcement was the release date. All Sprint had to say was that the Nexus S 4G would become available “this spring”.
And today we know what Sprint meant by that, since it’s decided to finally put an end to all the speculation and announce that the ‘pure Google’ smartphone will be available in stores and online on May 8. So it looks like an earlier leak had it right pointing to ‘early May‘ as the release time frame.
The price obviously hasn’t changed, it’s still going to cost you $199.99 with a new two-year contract, but that’s pretty much par for the course these days when you’re talking about high-end devices.
So if you crave the second ever ‘pure Google’ phone, but your carrier of choice is Sprint, there’s not that much more waiting to do from this point on.
