Sprint's Galaxy Nexus Streets April 22 for $199
Sprint today announced that it will begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sunday, April 22 for the price of $199.99 with a new contract. Sprint is pitching Google Wallet as an incentive with the device. Galaxy Nexus owners who activate a Google Wallet account within one week of purchasing the device will receive a $10 credit in their Google Wallet account immediately, followed by another $40 credit after three weeks. The Galaxy Nexus runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and has a 4.65-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
The latest version of Android offers a lot of performance upgrades and some new whiz-bang features. Phone Scoop takes it for a spin on the Galaxy Nexus.
