Sprint has officially announced the coming of the Galaxy Nexus to their wireless network this week at CES. This is outstanding news for Sprint and all those people who want to be on the Sprint network with the great Galaxy Nexus. It is currently on Verizon’s wireless network and is recognized as a great phone that does not have all the bloatware that is often added to phones. This is one of the first phones that is coming to Sprint which will be operating on their coming 4G LTE network that they are in the process of building. There was a minor mistake in the listing for the Sprint phone listing only 16 GB of storage and that was quickly corrected to be 32 GB. This is all leading up to the roll out of the Sprint 4G LTE network at the middle of the year.
It is that roll out at the middle of the year which is making this a strange and uncertain situation. We are looking at over 5 months before the first 10 cities will be live and that is a long ways off in the mobile technology world. Much can change and there has been an expectation that quad core phones are going to be announced this month and arrive in the second quarter. There was an absence of them at the CES show and Fujitsu was the only company to talk about one though this was only a prototype. There are other big events this month which offers opportunities to see them come up.
Sprint is announcing the Galaxy Nexus a little too early and waiting more than 3 or 4 months for a new phone is what seems a life time for many in the world of technology. There is always something newer and better coming up to take the place of the previous one. Just look at how the Droid 3 was replaced after not even 6 months on the market by the Droid 4. Things keep changing and the Galaxy Nexus is a great phone, but as time goes by, there is going to be others that are better.
