Nexus One Heads to Sprint
The Nexus One smartphone hasn’t even been on the market (officially) for three months and already it’s branching out into almost all of the major cell phone carriers. It is Google’s first phone, backed by the HTC corporation, and it is killing in sales and popularity. People really seem to be liking this phone, and soon, Sprint users will be able to get their hands on one.
Says MobileTechNews, “Nexus One will benefit from Sprint’s 3G network with twice the coverage of AT&T and 10 times the coverage of T-Mobile, both based on square miles.” I guess I didn’t realize how big of a network Sprint has–their 3G sounds pretty darn good! And with an Android-operated phone, I bet the coverage and the service/internet will be dynamite on the Nexus.
It doesn’t look as if there is a specific date as to when Sprint will begin to carry the Nexus One, but my guess is that it will be sometime soon–especially since Sprint has had so much success from the Samung + Android phones. Said Fared Adib, Sprint vice president of product development, “Nexus One is a powerful device that belongs on a powerful network. This is another step in our continued partnership of innovation with Google.” Sounds good to me!
The Nexus One for Sprint will feature everything that the phone already features with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. There isn’t a set price or plan for it yet, and it won’t be available in Sprint stores. Consumers will be able to get the phone (with a plan, etc.) online from Google, and hopefully it’ll be on the market very soon!
