      #40246 - 03/21/11 10:30 AM

Had a crush on the Samsung Nexus S but T-Mobile wasn't for you? Sprint's coming to the rescue with their 4G WiMAX-enhanced version of the Nexus. Like the original Nexus S, it has a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 4" Super AMOLED Contour Display. It should be a clean Google Experience device too, with Google Voice.




As with the Samsung Nexus S, Sprint states that the Sprint Nexus 4G will be among the first phones to get Android OS updates since it's a Google Experience phone.

Additional key features include:
?3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, supporting up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously
?Google mobile services such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, syncing with Google Calendar, Voice Actions and YouTube
?Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows the device to read information from everyday objects, like stickers and posters embedded with NFC chips
?16GB Internal Memory (ROM)/512MB (RAM)
?Wi-Fi ? 802.11 b/g/n
?Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
?Integrated GPS
?1500 mAh Lithium-ion battery



The Sprint Nexus 4G will be available this spring for $199 with a 2 year contract.

Is this phone shiny or what?



Here is the official factsheet:

Manufactured by Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), Nexus S 4G from Google comes packed with a pure Android experience using Android 2.3, Gingerbread, the fastest version of Android available. Nexus S 4G customers will be among the first to receive Android updates and the latest Google mobile services. Nexus S 4G is powered by a 1GHz Samsung application processor that produces rich 3D-like graphics, faster upload and download times and supports HD-like multimedia content, and a dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to make playing mobile games, browsing the Web and watching videos a fast, fluid and smooth experience. It is designed with Samsung?s brilliant Super AMOLED touchscreen technology providing a premium viewing experience. The 4-inch Contour Display features a curved design for a more comfortable look and feel in the user?s hand or along the side of the face. It also offers a screen that is bright with higher color contrast, meaning colors are incredibly vibrant and text is crisp at any size and produces less glare than on other smartphone displays when outdoors, so videos, pictures and games look their best and the sun won't wash them out.
