Okay, I know what you're thinking: isn't the Sprint GNex coming out on April 15th? Well... maybe. Actually, we're not sure now - according to a new document obtained by The Verge, it could actually be coming out exactly one week later, on April 22.


Despite the fact that the earlier leak came from a highly trusted source, this image appears to be legit, as all of the other dates are spot-on. So, if you're determined to get your hands on the very first Sprint LTE device out of the gate, it looks like the LG Viper is still on-schedule to hit on the 15th.

Of course, this could just be Wal-Mart specific, and the GNex could still land in Sprint retail outlets on April 15th, like previously rumored. There's only one way to find out for sure: wait for Sprint to let us know.

    Poor Sprint, always getting hand-me-down Nexus phones. Hey, Google! Just make the next nexus a Sprint exclusive and save us all six months!

      While it might be a hand me down, according to you, It is still a major improvement.

    I think its a little to late with other phones with better specs coming. I went ahead and upgraded to the Epic 4G Touch with no regrets. My wife will be giving me her August of this year upgrade and taking my Epic 4G Touch cause she wants the phone and I am in hopes that the Galaxy S3 will be out then.

    Google really need to set a higher standard on their hardware.

    And I was not happy with my Galaxy Nexus S 4g not being upgraded along with the other Nexus and I'm sure it will be the same for the Galaxy Nexus as well.

    So no thanks.

    I'm leaving for India in a couple of weeks and was hoping to get the BNX before then. Looks like I'll have to settle for the E4GT. :(

    Why can't Sprint act like a 1st class player instead of always settling for 2nd rate?

    It may just be that particular area or location getting it on those dates.

    I'm sure they will be prioritizing for areas that are getting LTE first when distributing the LTE capable phones.
