Sprint Officially Announces Galaxy Nexus As 4G LTE Launch Device

It’s now official: Sprint will be the second US carrier to officially carry Google’s flagship device, the Galaxy Nexus. Alongside their announcement of 4G LTE, Sprint indirectly announced that the Galaxy Nexus would, in fact, be coming to kick things off. By this time, we’re already familiar with the Galaxy Nexus and all of its Ice Cream Sandwich glory, and we’re sure this model will be extremely similar to the Verizon 4G LTE model.

Sprint isn’t just stopping there, though. Remember the controversy over whether the Verizon Galaxy Nexus was really a Nexus because Verizon decided to halt Google Wallet? Yeah, we do too. That reason alone caused delays for the Verizon Nexus, and Sprint is slapping them in the face with the screen of their Galaxy Nexus showing–can you guess?–Google Wallet. So there you have it, Sprint is finally getting some 4G LTE Ice Cream Sandwich love, and the Galaxy Nexus is “coming soon” along with the LG Viper.
