The Nexus site has been updated to add a sign-up page for Sprint’s version of the Galaxy Nexus. Sprint confirmed the existence of their LTE-carrying Galaxy Nexus during CES time but didn’t give much as far as a release date goes. We are inching ever closer, however, as sign-up pages usually mean that a launch is right around the corner.
It’s hard to pinpoint what Sprint will do in this instance, though, considering the uniqueness of this launch compared to other phones of theirs. The uniqueness comes with their LTE radio, technology that users wouldn’t be able to take advantage of until Sprint begins rolling out their 4G LTE network in the middle of this year.
They could very well wait for their network to go live before releasing the device. It remains to be seen if they’d be willing to sell a 4G phone before the network is ready but I don’t see why they couldn’t. It’s all speculation, anyway, so we’ll just wait and see what happens.
