Sprint Nexus S 4G coming this spring


(Courtesy of Sprint)
Google and Sprint have confirmed that the Nexus S 4G will be coming to Sprint this spring. Essentially the same as the Nexus S but with WiMax, the Sprint Android 2.3 handset will cost $200 with a two-year contract.

In fact, a Boy Genius Report said Google has said that the handsets will be virtually identical, though the Sprint handset will be a little thicker to accommodate the WiMax antenna.

Sprint promised that Nexus customers will be the very first to receive the latest updates from Android, and will, of course, have the Google Voice integration features Sprint announced for all its phones this morning.

The handset will require a Sprint Everything Data plan, which start at $80 a month ($69.99 a month with a $10 premium data add-on.)

Main features include:

  • - 4-inch contour display
  • - 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, for up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously
  • - Access to the Android Market
  • - Google mobile services
  • - Corporate e-mail, personal (POP & IMAP) e-mail and instant messaging
  • - Near field communication technology
  • - 16GB internal memory (ROM) and 512MB (RAM)
  • - Integrated GPS
  • - 5 MP rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing camera
