[UPDATE] Nexus One Shows Up In Sprint CelleBrite, But Does It Mean Anything?


Usually, when a phone makes an appearance in a CelleBrite system, it spells good things. We get excited for an eventual leakage of more information and begin our journey of waiting months for whoever the culprit is to just admit the existence of the device.

This isn’t the case here.

AndroidCentral is reporting that Twitter user RedWhiteAndJew snapped a recent picture of Sprint’s CelleBrite system which clearly shows the Nexus One amongst the list of phones supported. Sounds like a confirmation – that is until you see that the HTC HD2 is listed, as well.

Unless we just got confirmation of two distinct devices headed to Sprint, I wouldn’t get worked up over this just yet. CelleBrite systems usually don’t tell a clear story as they sometimes house phones that are not supported or sold by the carrier. I could be wrong – which is why I’m not saying that the Nexus One isn’t absolutely on its way to Sprint soon – but don’t be surprised (or get upset) if it turns out that a Sprint-compatible Nexus One is still a long way off.

[Update]: We understand Sprint’s already announced they’ll be getting the Nexus One. We’re just questioning whether or not it means it’ll be coming “soon”. Reason being is that the HTC HD2 – which has not even been rumored to be going to Sprint – also appears in the CelleBrite system.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. For some reason, I thought that the Nexus One coming to Sprint was old news until I realized it was a friend that works at Sprint that told me it was coming.

  2. Sprint having nexus one is old news… I submitted a post about this to phandroid quite a while ago. Here’s the link on the sprint website, to an official press release about it. No release date as of yet, but if rumors hold it could be as early as end of 2Q this year.


  3. Sprint actually has announced they will get the nexus one, one month ago. Release day unknown.


  4. celebrite doesn’t mean crap, all it means is that someone with a tmob N1 or ATT N1 can transfer there contracts to any sprint phone… don’t write crappy articles like this falsifying information, we have known the N1 would be coming to sprint just not when, this article is pointless
