We here in the States were a bit bummed when the Galaxy Nexus was released as a Verizon exclusive. The hurt subsided after a while and things went back to normal. But then CNET had to go and put up an ad touting the GNex hitting on the Sprint network. Billed as “the first 4G LTE phone from Sprint”, this version will actually rock a 1.5GHz dual-core processor instead of the paltry 1.2GHz found in the Verizon unit. The other specs match up with the 4.65 inch Super AMOLED screen, dual cameras, Android 4.0 and all the other familiar bells and whistles.
If the ad is true, that would make two of the major carriers grabbing the pure Android phone. As of now though, the ad has been pulled but its image lives on forever due to the magic of the internet. This comes after earlier reports of Sprint finally pulling the wraps off their LTE plans with them set to fire up by the middle of the year. If that is indeed the time frame, won’t a better, shinier device be right around the corner?
