Sprint Nexus S 4G

Earlier today, the Sprint website prematurely leaked information about the Google Nexus S 4G launching on Sprint and mentioned it would be fully integrated with Google Voice. Well, only a few hours later, Sprint officially confirmed the rumors involving the Google Nexus S 4G smartphone. It is nearly identical with the Google Nexus S that launched several months ago, but features complete integration with Google Voice and includes the coveted 4G radio. Assuming you live in an area covered by Sprint’s WiMAX 4G service, the Sprint Nexus S 4G will definitely be a great phone to consider. Unfortunately, the product release is set to take place sometime in the Spring for an unknown price point.
