Sprint to launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as its first LTE phone
Although Sprint’s didn’t actually talk about this, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will become its very first LTE handset.
An official Sprint ad seen over at Cnet (check the right side of the page) clearly says so. The ad doesn’t say when Sprint will launch the Galaxy Nexus, and if you click on “Learn more” you get an unfriendly 404 on Sprint’s website.
Anyway, earlier today, Sprint announced that it would roll-out LTE services in Dallas, Atlanta, Houston and San Antonio “before middle of year” – so that’s when the Galaxy Nexus will most likely be introduced.
Update: the ad no longer appears online.
Verizon Wireless is already selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the US, asking $299 for it (on contract). I assume Sprint will price the handset similarly. But let’s wait for the carrier to officially unveil more details on this (maybe at CES 2012 next week), shall we?
