Sprint has discontinued the Samsung Nexus S 4G, which it had been selling since May of 2011. The Nexus S 4G was, as you may already know, the Now Network’s version of the Samsung Nexus S – the second ever ‘Nexus’ device created by Google together with an Android phone maker.
Now that Sprint is selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (which is the Nexus S 4G’s successor), this move undeniably makes some sense. Of course, some may still have preferred the fact that the older smartphone is more compact. But as of now, if you’re a Sprint customer (or want to become one) and would like to get a Nexus device, the Galaxy Nexus is your only option.
The Nexus S 4G probably didn’t manage to break any sales records at Sprint, but it surely was appreciated by those who value timely software updates in the Android world.
