Galaxy Nexus may be coming to AT&T soon, with LTE

Galaxy Nexus may be coming to AT&T soon, with LTE
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has had a somewhat slow rollout in the US. While the device has been on Verizon for a while, it still has yet to officially be released by any other carriers. We've seen recently that Sprint will be launching the device soon, but AT&T and T-Mobile users have had to rely on imported GSM versions. 

Now, it looks like AT&T will be officially launching the Galaxy Nexus, complete with LTE support. This is still an unconfirmed rumor at this point, but AndroidRevolution is claiming that an "inside source" at AT&T has said that AT&T SIM cards for the Galaxy Nexus have been sent out for testing, which is usually a pretty good indicator that a device will be coming relatively soon. The SIM cards have been confirmed as LTE-enabled. It has been reported that the SIM cards are full-sized and not micro-SIMs. 

We can't say for sure how reliable the source is, but if all the info checks out, it seems likely that an LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus would be making its way to AT&T fairly soon. We'll try getting some more confirmation and bring you more as we get it.

SGN or SGS III? It's a good problem I guess:-)

On April 16th, Sprint will be pulling 30 names to give them a Galaxy Nexus. Would be nice to win, I would still hold onto my Photon but having a way better screen with LTE would be nice. ;)

Will the Sprint version run on WiMax and 4G LTE?

No, there will not be any phones with WiMax and LTE antennas it's one or the other. WiMax is being phased out

Hmmm, makes sense, but it may help with coverage until Sprint is done.

Having both WiMax and LTE will be nice... But brother, think about the poor fellow called battery sitting inside the Galaxy-Nexus...

I work for AT&T and I have not heard anything about the Galaxy Nexus coming soon. I'm sure it's probably true though. Also, SIM cards are universal to every phone. There's no phone that has an "Exclusive" SIM card as it's own that I know of and never heard of it. iPhone 4 was the first for the micro sim and now available for a few Pantech Android devices. The poster needs to correct that.

I was going to get this phone but heard it has radio issues. I finally got the HTC Rezound instead.

You as ATT users are lucky if you get the version with the radio issue solved. It will be worth the wait (even though it's considered as quite long time)!

AT&T should offer it, mainly because I like that their 4G LTE phones fall back on HSPA+ if you don't have LTE coverage in your area. Both technologies are pretty fast, so it's a win-win situation.

It wouldn't surprise me if T-Mobile is ignored. It would be a shame if T-mobile is the only one of the big four to be left out on the Galaxy nexus.

now what if the galaxy s3 is as disappointing as we never thought it would? What if the design is as ugly as ...... what would we say now? WHAT IF it got lower benchmark scores than htc one x? What would we do now?

The Galaxy Nexus is old news already. Bring on the S3! It's not even worth the hassle to sell your GS2 or Skyrocket to get the Nexus. It's basically the same phone with a bigger screen. Anyway, didn't PA already post that AT&T's Galaxy Nexus was gonna be the Skyrocket HD (which isn't the same as the Nexus anyway)? What ever happened to that? But anyone that has an S2(i777) or Skyrocket (i727), I would suggest keeping them until the S3 comes out, or something more advanced.
