Galaxy Nexus pushed back to April 22?

According to TheVerge, it looks like there is a flyer that has the release dates for the LG Viper and the Galaxy Nexus. The LG Viper is still staying put for Apr 15 but now the Galaxy Nexus is pushed back one week to Apr 22. I guess maybe Sprint thought they wanted to give the LG Viper at least a week head start to gain some sales. I don't think its going to make much of a difference given the popularity of the Galaxy Nexus.

I see this as corroboration of our articles. Awesome!!!

Is it possible that Sprint will still release the GNex on the 15th, but it won't see authorized resellers until a week later? Sprint may want to drive sales at their corporate stores. This is a memo for Sams Club...

I agree, Good indicator that it's at least ready to debut and Sam's Club will get it later in the week.

Hopefully that is true that it sticks with the 15th and that will definitely validate the nice info Robert has received.

I still see it as validation either way...April 15th or 22nd. Scott, AJ and I saw the source info. We know it is legit from Sprint. So we know that if it ends up being the GNex on the 22nd, it's a slip. We see schedules slip for device releases all the time, especially from Verizon. To be on it by a week, that's accurate to me. And we called it before anyone else did.

 

If the Viper holds the 15th, then I will be smiling from ear to ear. I feel pretty darn good, already. But I have to admit, I'd feel even better if it did come out on the 15th to corporate stores.

 

I think Sprint will announce right after their HTC event this week. They don't want to upstage their HTC event.

I guess you'll be smiling then.

Looks like the Sprint Galaxy Nexus training material is coming out today for Sprint employees. Also if you look at the "Update" section in the article below it looks like it confirms Robert's article about LTE turned off by default. Nice to hear the internal docs are coming to fruition.

 

Update: We've since stumbled upon a full slide deck of the training guide, and while there's nothing too surprising here, we are seeing that early units will ship with LTE turned off by default, though the company will change that at an undetermined time in the future. Call us crazy, but it sounds like Sprint may start hawking these prior to its LTE network being fully active.

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
