Sprint unveiled its own version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in January, saying it would launch it sometime “before mid-2012”. Since then, we haven’t heard much about the smartphone. Until now, when the third largest US mobile carrier has kicked off a sweepstakes – dubbed Data Storm Sweepstakes – which lets 30 participants win a Galaxy Nexus each.
You can enter the sweepstakes: online (either via your PC or phone), by sending a postcard to Sprint, or by playing the Data Storm mobile game. All the details you need are available here at Sprint. As always, you should make sure to read the rules before entering.
The contest ends on April 5, so it’s likely that the handset will become available shortly after that. Sprint has yet to announce the price of its Galaxy Nexus, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s going to be $299 on contract (to match Verizon’s pricing).
Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus is similar to the one sold by Verizon since late 2011, hence it features LTE connectivity (being Sprint’s first LTE handset), Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED HD display, NFC and Google Wallet, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera with panorama shots and 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 32GB of internal memory.
