Official Sprint video showcases Galaxy Nexus with Google Wallet
While it is a great primer for those new to the concept of NFC, what we are all excited about is that it features the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on Sprint. The device will support the carrier’s upcoming 4G LTE network and obviously, unlike the Verizon launch of the GALAXY Nexus, will come with Google Wallet right out of the box.
Sprint did not confirm any specific dates or timeframes, but many are assuming and hoping that with this kind of marketing material being released, a launch may be right around the corner.

Hmmmm to re sign with Sprint or not?
My 56GB months say no.
But my horrible .01 mbps at my house say yes.

I hate how carriers have to be so secretive. My friend he wants to upgrade but his choices are phones that are all 6+ months old. If you arent literally releasing it within the next 2 weeks, at least tell us WHEN so he can decide if he will wait for it or just get something like a 4S. Gees!

You would think that would give a release date for a couple of reasons:
1. The phone is already out on another carrier, so Sprint is not shocking the industry.
2. To keep people who are now contract free to leave to another carrier Sprint could atleast temp them to stay with "Hey, we are releasing the Galaxy Nexus on such and such date."
Sprint knows they need people to re-up because their selection of phones are dated and only the SGII is worthy for me to even be considered. I want the GN because I want speedy udates for once.

Don't count on any specific release dates, Sprint still has one major problem with having any LTE phones, and that is because they don't have LTE yet

@Alantef: So you don't want people thinking you have Sprint? Somehow I'm thinking us people will get along out here just fine whether you have Sprint or not. Of course I could be wrong and the knowledge of you having a phone on Sprint could be the catalyst to nuclear war or an intricate piece of the Mayan calendar.
