Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming to T-Mobile?
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is not only the first handset running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but many also consider it to be simply the best Android device made so far and that’s why the possibility of it arriving on T-Mobile sounds particularly exciting. The Galaxy Nexus is already available on Verizon Wireless and Sprint, but it has skipped AT&T and T-Mobile. 

Now, evidence has popped up that a mysterious Samsung-T999, a handset with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, matching the one on the Galaxy Nexus, is indeed arriving on T-Mobile. Not only that, but the T999 model name matches the naming scheme of T-Mobile: T for the name of the carrier and the typical 9 at the end.

TMo is known for offering the most affordable plans among the four major US carriers, so the Galaxy Nexus will definitely be a welcome addition. Even more so considering the fact that the carrier is the only one among the major four that doesn’t carry the iPhone.

I think what he meant by that is that it has been confirmed for a release on Sprint.

Yeah I have to agree with you. It seems like a PhoneArena.com boo boo to me. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is definitely not on Sprint as of right now. I believe they said it was coming in June, as per CES.

I agree!!! I understand that it has been anounced on Sprint.....but theres still NO RELEASE DATE!!!! What good is that?????? This is CRAP! When is Sprint going to Release it????? NO ONE KNOWS!!! Thats what makes me mad!!! Why "offically announce" a phone....and not give a release date....especially a phone that everyone on sprint will want??? Another disapointing day with Sprint i Supppose. FAIL!

Hopefully it will launch soon. Great device, but if the sgs3 gets to the USA by summer like the sgs1 did, the nevus will be irrelevant

That's until the next Nexus that will be released in the same year.

I thought the Blaze was reported as SGH-T999 when announced?

yeah uh guys, this only lines up with what we already know. the Blaze 4G w/ an HD Display is coming to T-Mobile. whoo-hooo. trust me, i want to to see the Galaxy Nexus come to T-Mobile myself. i hate having to recommend that fake Galaxy S II variant they have as the best handset you can get on the carrier.

I was excited about Galaxy Nexus but disappointed by its flaws.
It's sad T-Mobile will not get Moto Razr or HTC Rezound.

Oh jesus, the Nexus release on Sprint is going to be just like Verizon. I can already see all the obnoxious douches getting upset. Relax.
