Three days ago, Sprint finally announced pre-order and availability details for its version of the Galaxy Nexus. Turns out that the demand was more than expected, as the Now Network is completely sold out of its pre-order inventory.

Considering we don't often hear about carriers selling out of pre-order devices, this might be a good indication that the Sprint GNex could be even more difficult than anticipated to find on retail shelves beginning on April 22.

Verizon LG Spectrum Build VS920ZV5 Ready To Go, According To Verizon Support Docs (No, It's Not ICS)

Big Red isn't skimping on the updates over the past couple of days (though none of them are ICS) - yesterday we saw changelogs for upcoming Droid RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4 OTAs, and today, details for an upcoming OTA to the LG Spectrum hit Verizon's site.

AT&T Officially Announces The HTC One X - Available On May 6th For $199, Pre-Orders Begin on April 22

I'm convinced that April 22, 2012 will forever be recognized as one of the most Android-packed day of all time. Why, you ask? Because that's the day that the day that Sprint's Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and LG Optimus Elite will be available, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7 and ASUS Transformer Pad 300. Looks like AT&T didn't want to be left out, so it announced this morning that its version of the HTC One X would be available for pre-order on that very day for $199, with a release date set for May 6th (which lines up with previous rumors - good job, Best Buy!).
