Sprint takes pre-orders for the Galaxy Nexus today, but 4G LTE network not ready.
Sprint just started to build up their 4G LTE network. Sprint recently announced Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio are expected to have 4G LTE and enhanced 3G service in mid-year 2012. You can already pre-order your Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE phone today. You will get it on April 22, but Sprint won't have the LTE network in place by then in the initial cities. Selling the Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE phone now without a LTE network is a bit ridiculous.
The Galaxy Nexus 4G is available on Verizon for only $79.99 on Amazon Wireless.
The Galaxy Nexus is outfitted with a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Contour Display (with curved glass), 5-megapixel camera with zero shutter lag and Full HD 1080p video recording, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls on the go. It's powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor that speeds up your web browsing, gaming, and multitasking. The world's first Smartphone running on Android 4.0 (a.k.a., Ice Cream Sandwich), the 4G LTE enabled Galaxy Nexus by Samsung for Verizon brings a redesigned user interface with enhanced multitasking, notifications, full Web browsing experience, and more. You'll also enjoy innovative, next-gen features such as Face Unlock, which uses facial recognition to unlock the Galaxy Nexus.
