Sprint to get the Nexus One?
Sprint customers can stop feeling left out. Remember when we reported that Walmart had listed the Nexus One on its web site? Even though the giant retailer said that the posting was a mistake, it did show that the phone would be available for Sprint. While that sounds promising, it is a letter from Sprint's Customer Solutions to Gizmodo responding to an inquiry about the N-One that really gets the juices flowing. The letter reads, "Thank you for contacting Sprint regarding the nexus one. Unfortunately, this handset model is not on offer as of now. Once it is launched, you will see promotional campaigns related to the launch date, cost and the features of the handset on our Web site and other promotional media. Thank you for showing interest in our products & services. Please let us know if you would like us to assist you with anything else."

The letter certainly makes it sound like the Nexus-One has its eye set on getting launched at Sprint. As far as having to produce a CDMA version iof the handset for the pin-dropping network, such a model will be ready by March when the Verizon version of the phone is supposed to be released. With the story we reported the other day about a FCC filing for the device with AT&T's 3G frequencies included, a Sprint launch would appear to allow the N-One to have a version for each of the top 4 U.S. carriers. Sprint customers, start walking with your chin up. Looks like you won't be left out after all.

I think google needs to learn from it's first missteps on the N1's release, and realize they don't have the resources to sell and troubleshoot a device. The fact that I can't purchase my Nexus 1 through verizon and be able to rely on their customer service may be the thing that pushes me into getting a droid instead of a nexus. Google is touting that these are "unlocked" phones, but in the end, there is no difference between other devices. You pay a discount price if you sign a contract, and full retail if you don't. If google wants to make any headway, they need to worry about the OS, and let the carriers worry about selling the phones.

Unlock for CDMA carriers? What good does that do?

Don't get me wrong I think the Nexus One is an option for me but I think I'm going to wait and see what Apple or Palm come out with mid this year.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Nexus One is an option for me, but I think I'm going to wait and see what WinMo 7 and HTC have in store for mid year.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Nexus One is an option for me, but I think I'm going to put a third comment here for no reasons.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Nexus One is an option for me, but I think I am going with the zune phone, but I have a feeling that others are going to repeat the same question OVER and OVER AGAIN!! :/

This phone is too good for Sprint's BS network.
