10 additional Sprint devices to receive Google Wallet
One of those devices is expected to be the LG Viper, which is anticipated to be available in the spring. Osama Bedier, vice president of Google Wallet and Payments, said that Google is still in talks with additional operators, manufacturers, banks, financial services, and POS vendors to expand Google Wallet’s footprint in the NFC mobile payment arena.
Google Wallet and Sprint are gearing up to defend their market share against its up and coming competitor, Isis. Isis is a joint venture between AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile. While it is currently in trials in Salt Lake City and Austin, Isis has already reached deals with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express and has commitments from HTC, LG, Motorola Mobility, RIM, Samsung and Sony for future device support.

The title says ten additional Sprint devices, and the GN is up and coming like the LG device

You were behind the game. They had already changed the first sentence of the article to be correct by time you read it.

They mean to say that it will be on the galaxy nexus for sure when it is released on sprint.

If sprint wanted the Galaxy Nexus to be their first LTE device as they said, then why would they release the Viper, which is a LTE device, in the spring when the GN isn't due until summer? Sprint is really testing my patience these days, I've been due for an upgrade since last Nov. and they haven't released one single phone worth a sh*t while everyone else is releasing something every other week. I like the GSII alot but I want and HD screen like all the other high end devices. Where are the 20 devices they were suppose to release this year? First quarter is almost up already. Maybe this SPH-L710 will pan out to something soon.

That thing would be as big a my computer. Ha. And about the specs of my computer too. But it would be a hell of a phone.

They should be able to keep it under the size of a notebook computer but that's only because when you unfold it, the two WHUXGA screens would be about 15inches each at 600ppi.
They'd have to come up with 1800ppi displays in order to keep those screens around 5 inches. They'd have to put in something on the order of a 15000mAh (15Ah) battery set for it then.
If they kept it really thin, it'd actually make for a truly beautiful device. Like I said, it's a dream device.
