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. Read More
We've been waiting eagerly for Sprint to get on board the LTE train and now that it's finally happening with the Now Network's version of the Galaxy Nexus, Wirefly is stepping in to make the deal even more attractive: the Galaxy Nexus is available today for $150 with a new account. That's half the price of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and $50 off the phone directly from Sprint.
If you're looking to get in on Sprint's "truly unlimited" LTE data plans, but still want to save some cash on the device, Wirefly is also selling the LG Viper for $20, or $80 off Sprint's official price. Read More
Confirming our suspicion that Sprint's variant of the Galaxy Nexus would be available on the 22nd, a pre-order page has gone live at Sprint.com, allowing customers to reserve Samsung's first Ice Cream Sandwich-powered device for just $199 with a two-year agreement.
What's more, the Now Network's pre-order page suggests that customers who buy early may just get their hands on a Galaxy Nexus sooner than expected:
Order online today, we’ll charge your card for your phone today and we’ll do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Sunday, April 22.
We deal with rumors and potential fakes on a daily basis, and I have to warn you right away - on a scale of unconfirmed to solid, the source of this post is leaning to the left. Read More
We've long suspected that the Spring Galaxy Nexus will be finally crawling out of the labs and into our hands on April 22nd, with today's Sprint planogram note BGR got ahold of confirming it. To make the case even stronger, we'll throw in a tip from one of our sources at Best Buy who sent us these internal images.
While neither picture explicitly names the devices, they should indeed be the Galaxy Nexus and the LG Viper 4G, the latter of which is officially coming out on the same date as well. Read More
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. Read More

There's no doubt that the Galaxy Nexus is one of the best things Verizon Wireless has going for it right now. If you've been thinking about jumping over to Big Red so you can grab the Android 4.0 flagship, but can't justify the $300 price, then AmazonWireless and Wirefly are here to save the day.
Both of the online retailers are offering the GN for a mere $80 with a new two-year agreement, so the toughest decision that you're left with is which one one to buy from. Read More
Things are really starting to heat up for the arrival of Sprint's Galaxy Nexus on both the 'net and in Sprint stores; in fact, rumor has it that employee training started today. Graciously, one of those employees happened to send a few slides over to Android Life that confirms almost everything we want to know about the device, excluding one small detail: the release date.
Ever since Sprint announced the GNex at CES this year, there have been rumors that it will have a 1.5GHz processor. Read More
