Sprint's Galaxy Nexus pre-orders sell out

Sprint's Galaxy Nexus pre-orders sell out
When the LTE-equipped Samsung Galaxy Nexus launches on Sprint on the 22nd, it will be closing in on half a year since the original GSM version launched to the world. Does that mean no one will want it? Apparently not, as Sprint’s website shows they have already sold out of their pre-order stock in the first 72 hours. (Don't panic if you wanted one, there should be plenty in stores on launch day).

Of course we don’t know how many devices Sprint ordered for pre-sale, so we don’t know if this translates to monster sales or just poor corporate planning, but clearly the Galaxy Nexus is drawing more interest than Sprint had planned for. It’s worth noting that LG's Viper 4G LTE handset, which has been on pre-order longer AND is currently priced for $100 less has not managed to sell out, so it would seem that Google’s slightly-aged flagship device still has some legs left in it.


Are you on Sprint? Do you plan to pick one up, or is there another phone you’ve got your heart set on? Let us know in the comments section below.

i'm leaning towards the EVO 4G LTE, but I'll probs decide after the SGSIII (or whatever they decide to call it) announcement

Exact same thought process.
I figure by the time the EVO 4G hits stores, the SGSIII will be officially announced

EVO 4G LTE will be hitting stores in early June, the SGSIII will be shown to the world May 3rd or 4 days before the Pre orders begin for the LTE. You should have an idea before you preorder which you will like more. I love my current EVO 4G so I will be getting the LTE. I love HTC much more than Samsung personally.

Agree. EVO no problems and I do like thier interface.

Samsung I had issues and still have a couple of those still giving me problems...

Just wish Verizon had the HTC One X.

Still haven't heard anything about the results for the Data drop contest to win a Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Emailed Sprint to see when they will announce the winners, contest said April 16 they would pull 30 names but nobody has any idea what's going on. Oh well , still rocking my Photon :)

Its always have minor upgrades, and getting boring every day. You're just wasting your time, again go to farm and feed your fellow sheeps!!!

Krapple's restrictions? A slow operating system? An app launcher and keyboard that you can't change? Shall I continue?

I have thegsm nexus and the LTE galaxy note and love both handsets. The gsm nexus has great battery life and i also picked up a few extra batteries. I can get at least 12 hours with moderate usage and can also say pretty descent call quality. I do hope the next update come soon since i am still stuck with 4.0.1. .... For all you haters that comment with negative feedback you probably have never used one or dont understand how to. I have owned over 30 smartphones in the last 2 years and can say with certainty samsung make good phones. I work in the telecommications field and am lucky enough to use these smartphones.

Oh Lord. I imagine the EVO LTE will sell even faster. Hopefully they don't run out of pre-orders on my birthday, cuz thats when I plan on buying one... I want my EVO to be on my doorstep waiting for me the day it's released

I don't mind if they sellout, Amazon will probably have it for 129 out the gate. If they sell out that's just more reason for me to wait on the other two monsters (SGSIII and EVO One) coming out.

If Sprint doesn't have any good WP7 phones by the time I can upgrade, which is September, then I was thinking of staying with Android and getting a Nexus device. I might as well get a "Pure Google" device. After all, the Nexus line is Android's version of the iPhone.

They hopefully will, but by then there will be much better phones than the SGN. But I hope they have some good WP8 phones by then, because I personally like the OS and think that its the only real competitor to Android

Hopefully once WP8 comes, Sprint will consider picking some up because I know WP8 phones will have LTE support. The reason why I was thinking of getting a Nexus device is because they are "Pure Google" phones, as Sprint put it. I don't want my device to be fragmented and/or never get updates. But the only thing that would hold me back from getting one is the lack of microSD card expansion. At least WP8 will offer that in their new phones.

I think that the removable SD is overrated now that there are cables and even apps like airdroid that can wireless connect to your computer through wifi and be able to move files and do phone stuff like call/text from your computer via a webpage

True, but it's nice to at least have the option. I haven't gotten on board "the cloud" yet. LOL

Apps like airdroid don't actually use the cloud, they just transfer your files from your SD card to your computer like a cable or sd card adapter. The advantage of airdroid is that you can also use it to call and text from your PC

I will probably get one. Since the Evo One does not have a replaceable battery, it's the next choice for me.

Samsung sucks a@@ at sending out updates, so this is the only Samsung I would consider since it's not dependant on Samsung.

my father will be picking up a gsm nexus tommorow. he told me to suggest him a phone and the nexus was it. not sure if I did the right thing since it is known for not being user friendly, but I am sure it's no rocket science. I am planning on getting one too if it lives up to my expectation which I am pretty sure it will.

They probably had 10 phones ready for preorder cuz they knew no one would want it. It is a decent phone, but I think it's pretty ugly. I'm waiting for the Evo 4G LTE.

whats with all these htc lovers hating on this page? the nexus is a great phone. I am unsure why the hatred? there's alot of people who's going to purchase the nexus and there's going to be alot of people purchasing the htc. to each his own. each manufacturer has its weaknesses and strengths.

i should know what i am talking about i have had the rezound, maxx, 4s, and gs2, etc. i think if your an android user and have the patience to wait for the gs3 and razr maxx hd. and compare the gs3, maxx hd, and the htc evo.

those waiting for apple should wait for the 5.

windows users should wait for ?
