Google Nexus S 4G is officially set with a May 8th release & $200 on-contract pricing
Hard to believe, but the Google Nexus S 4G is still one of the very few devices that’s expected to be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread from the onset, but thankfully, we’re now presented with an official date for its release.

Finally, Sprint came out to officially announce May 8th as the day when the handset will begin to go on sale through all Sprint channels. Even though some people might have been able to gobble up pre-orders of the device for some time now, there’s still going to be just a little bit of wait before they’re able to start playing around with this Google inspired smartphone. Obviously, you’ll need to shell out the usual $200 with your signature on a 2-year contract, but we’d imagine that some would easily pay the premium without much complaint considering the nature of the device.

With the Google Nexus S 4G arriving just before we’re poised to find ourselves in the simmering heat wave of summer, are you still considering on picking it up knowing that devices like the HTC EVO 3D are on the way?

Wow a Nexus phone on 4G looks very nice. I always liked the Nexus S. It still moves very quickly & it will only be faster on 4G. Good Sprint & Google.

Does anyone know if this will ever come to verizon??
The current android phones in verizon suck balls, and i dont see any upcoming phones that are good enough except the "bionic" or whatever is going to be called.

Not sure, would be a good reason to ditch the red V and move over to Sprint. The plans seem to be more competitive and no data caps. Sprint seems to offer more for less. Just a thought.

It depends on where you live. Sprint seems to be hit or miss right now. In Michigan the 3g data speeds are horrible and we don't have 4g yet in most cities. Personally I wouldn't leave Verizon. When my contract expires I will be leaving Sprint, unless something has been done with the network being overcrowded.
