Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
Anyone have info on the tower at 60 Hanover St. in Meriden? Can’t find any permit info but it after service outages yesterday afternoon, I briefly saw 5 bars of 10x10 b25 (8290)
this was an old clear only tower.
Its decent but definitely not better than 1x800. You start hearing that robotic sound and then it goes to shit from there if your around 115 b26. I have even seen it happen with 105dbm of b25.
I'm on b25 most of the time and once 10mhz showed up on most towers converge of b25 vastly improved but lately b41 has been expanding quick. We now have ten b41 towers online. Seven from just the last 90 days and one of them came online today.
