Everyone screws up at some point in life, but when a company as big as Sprint puts up a front-page banner showing a completely different, highly anticipated phone in place of one that's over a year old, we're going to have no choice but bring it up. And maybe even point the finger. Like so:


I'm sure we all wish the Nexus S 4G looked like that, but that is most definitely not it. I know, you're excited to get the word about the Galaxy Nexus out there (we are too, even though it's almost half a year late), but this is certainly not the way to do it. Has anyone in the promotions department ever seen one of the top Android phones on the network?

If you want to see this blasphemy with your own eyes, just head over to Sprint.com (select Not a current customer) or look at the original image that's being used here.

I wonder if they'll even notice...

Update: The homepage is now fixed, in less than an hour. I'm impressed.

Thanks, Zachary!

    Looks like they've taken it down already.

  • J Rush

    Fail indeed. Haha...yeah, I wished the Nexus S looked like that!

  • Jaymoon

    Better hurry up and get a Nexus S before 4/17 for free, so that they can drop the Galaxy Nexus on 4/22...

    Geez Sprint. Just release it already!

      We don't have timestamps on the site (you can see them in RSS), but you can judge by the first comment timestamps.

      So they did. Time on the clock - less than an hour, not bad.

  • seriosbrad

    I like this site but you must be bored to post this news lol.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Fwiw it was posted into offtopic, not news.

      • seriosbrad

        oh, i see. I consider everything on the front page to be news... it's the front page heh.

        • Freak4Dell

          Isn't every article written on this site posted to the front page? I always thought the tabs were just ways to filter, not a way to access more content than what's on the homepage and previous pages.

          It is, but if we want to post something that's not news, that's currently the only way to do it.
