Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to come with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and arguably, it’s just about the best phone that people have used so far. Ever since its announcement in October 2011, there has been rumors and speculations on which carriers would be carrying this groundbreaking handset.
According to Engadget back in October, Galaxy Nexus’s launch information signup page included 7 US Carriers: AT&T, Cellular South, Metro PCS, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. Currently the Galaxy Nexus is available on Verizon and Sprint announced its plans to bring the Nexus to its lineup several weeks ago in CES.
If you’re one of those folks anxiously waiting for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus to launch, it looks like the signup page (to alert you when the phone launches) has just come live on the Galaxy Nexus’s official site.
According to Talk Android, a few differences between the Sprint and Verizon versions are expected. The Sprint Galaxy Nexus will be equipped with Google Wallet unlike Verizon, and you’ll be free of any unnecessary “bloatware” as you’d see on the Verizon version.
Talk Android has a nice review of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus – apart from the minor differences stated above, the devices should be the exact same so check it out!
