There have been dozens of tech articles and reviews come out today over the GSM Galaxy Nexus release in the UK today. Have you read any reviews? What are your thoughts? Starting to get excited about the Galaxy Nexus and/or Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? When do you think Sprint will get it, or if at all? Sound off below...

Do they release it with 3G only? They would get laughed off the face of the earth. Samsung and Google probably wouldn't go for it, either. I think Sprint holds out and there is Galaxy Nexus release on the Now netowerk.

I have a feeling it will be a launch phone for Sprint. A high end HTC, Galaxy Nexus, and MAYBE a nice Motoroloa device along with a couple of USB modems and Mifi type devices will be the lineup. I don't see a point in launching a dumbphone with 4g but thats a possibility too (if Moto has no device then a dumbphone or a tablet will probably also launch)

This is a nice phone and will be as well in 4-6 months when we (better) start hearing things about the 4g rollout and devices to use it.

Sprint has said they are releasing 15 LTE devices in 2012. Given they aren't going to start until mid year, that's a lot. Should feel like rapid fire.

 

 

Hopefully the GN is one of them. My upgrade has been available since August and I've been waiting for ICS. I'm at least hoping Sprint will get some ICS phones before summer. I don't think my area will even get LTE until sometime in 2013.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
