    That sounds like a pretty good deal. Minus the Sprint part though. Reply

    I got to play with a Verizon Galaxy Nexus for about 10 mins setting it up for a user. OMG, the screen is huge and beautiful. Really nice phone. Reply

    Why "pretty good deal minus the sprint part"? Reply

    I think the point was that Sprint's network isn't the best. If it is good where you live, have a cookie, but it has never been great and ever since they started selling off their towers to raise money the experience with Sprint has been hit or miss at best. They are a fine example of "you get what you pay for". Reply

    56k modem 3g speeds on sprint where I am. They were okay until they got the iphone. Sprint is oversold. Reply

    This phone's hardware will be obsolete by the time it releases on Sprint. If the HTC one phones are 199 the galaxy on Sprint will not have a chance. Reply

    On what basis will it be obsolete? Will it not adequately operate in the conditions demanded of it? Will the hardware get zapped by a HTC One/Galaxy S III ray and stop functioning? Will the screen suddenly be B&W?

    Might it be 5-10% slower on benchmarks? Sure. Might its screen be slightly less enthralling compared to competitors? Maybe. Will anyone who doesn't review phones for a living notice either of these in daily use? Less likely.

    Will this still be a phone that gets the latest updates as soon as they're available without rooting? Yes.

    I'll be generous and give you outdated. But obsolete? Give me a break.

    I am pretty sure he just meant that people will look at this and that and buy that over this. Reply

    would anyone want to use Google wallet. After what they've shown the world they think of your right to your own information. For that matter, why would anyone want to use Google anything? Reply

    Considering the alternatives I'm surprised you even have to ask this question. Reply

    I've been using the Google Nexus S 4G since release. It was $199 a year ago. How is this phone any different then what i use now? And at the same price point, seriously, WTF? Reply

    Yup, just added LTE.

    And Sprint plans to serve maybe a half dozen cities by the end of summer. So limited customer appeal. Also, the SoCs with LTE on-chip are just around the corner. If you waited this long, you should probably wait a little longer.
