It's the end of the line for the Google Nexus S 4G at Sprint
On May 8th 2011, the Google Nexus S 4G was launched and now, a little over a year later, the phone has been discontinued. This comes just days after Sprint was offering the phone for free with a 2-year pact. And last month, the phone was updated to Android 4.0 which means it crosses over with an updated OS. While many prefer the 4 inch screen on the phone, the Samsung GALAXY Nexus is the successor to the Nexus S 4G and offers a 4.65 inch display. Hard to imagine that a 4 inch display would be on the low end of smartphone screen sizes just a year after the phone was launched. But the single-core 1GHz Hummingbird processor is well short of today's norm.

The Google Nexus S 4G will be remembered for its NFC support which made it the only handset that featured Google Wallet for a time until the Samsung GALAXY Nexus was released.. If you absolutely, positively need this device, you might want to check with some third party retailers like Best Buy or Radio Shack.
