The Nexus S 4G on Sprint is a self-explanatory little phone: It’s the same Nexus S – Android 2.3, contour display, NFC powers – but with the added goodness of Sprint’s 4G WiMax network.
It’s probably our pick of Android phones now on Sprint – the Evo is nearly a year old, and the major advantage of the Nexus S is that it’ll be on the bleeding edge of Android updates. Even if it’s no Atrix 4G in terms of ultra-powered specs, it’s good to see this phone make some headway on other carriers. Especially now that this kind of phone won’t be happening with T-Mobile, if the AT&T deal goes through. No official pricing yet, but $US200 with a two-year contract sounds like the safe bet. [Google]
