As a Sprint employee we are thrilled to finally get the Nexus. Now we have a great phone to sell with this new ear device thing called Bluetooth. Super excited!

I'm surprised phonearena still hasn't posted the GSIII mockup thats been going around. It looks somewhat legitimate.

Staying on topic though... The GNexus is coming a little too late for sprint. CTIA is right around the corner and its most likely going to bring a version of the One X to sprint. Also theres the Galaxy S III which should be released this summer. Theres too many better alternatives coming for android in the coming months that anyone in their right mind would be foolish to pick this up now.

Looks like this will never come to AT&T. I'm settling for the iON

As a Verizon Nexus owner, all I can say is, don't get too excited. Incredibly buggy phone. Still stuck on 4.0.2. We were promised antenna update fix in January, then Feb, now March. Still nothing. For a Nexus phone supposedly on the "cutting edge" of updates and such, this has been a real disappointment. I hope Sprint customers are treated to a little better support for this phone.

Haven't had any issues with mine, in fact, my Nexus has been a lot better than my HTC and Motorola smartphones... What bugs exactly are you experiencing?

Well this is good news but Sprint still hasn't decided if they're going to go with Clearwire on their LTE or hasn't made moves rolling it out.I said it before they need to be like Verizon are be more aggressive in their moves.

Galaxy Nexus is a great phone for Sprint because it'll be the first Android 4.0 LTE phone in their lineup but two things will make it great 1.will it have the 1.5 Dual Core processor ?2.Is the camera going to be any better? I'm seriously waiting on the Galaxy S III (hopefully the Epic Touch 4g LTE). And they should make a serious run at Metro PCS for that spectrum because they have LTE as well(courtesy of Big Red)

I agree with you about metro, I think it was a very bad decision by the board to deny that purchase, it was a two for one deal, an LTE pipeline, and some new customers, which is something Sprint drastically needs.

Sprit needs to offer the Samsung Note in LTE soon,or it will lose customers.
