Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - 7:51 PM MST
According to the thecellphonejunkie.com, prices for the new Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE is to be $200 and the new LG Viper 4G LTE is to be $100. They will more likely be $199 and $99 respectively.
It looks like Sprint is trying to undercut Verizon's pricing. However, I would fully expect that Verizon will more than likely have lowered it's price to match Sprint's by the time they get their LTE devices released. The source link reports that the model is to be 16GB, however, Sprint confirmed today that they are selling only the 32GB model.
One key differentiator between the Verizon and Sprint models is that Sprint's Galaxy Nexus will have Google Wallet from the get-go. Verizon specifically has ordered their Nexii without Google Wallet. Though workarounds exist for Verizon customers to force it.
Also, it turns out that the reported 1.5GHz dual core processor info leaked last week was a typo. The Sprint model of the galaxy Nexus will be 1.2GHz dual core, just like the Verizon model. This information came out of the Sprint CES Event this evening at the Venetian. Hopefully more juicy info to follow.
