Galaxy Nexus reaches Sprint, Google Wallet included The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now available to Sprint users.
Like its CDMA counterpart on Verizon, the flagship Android 4.0 phone will have LTE support but unlike the Verizon version, the Sprint model will give access to Google Wallet, an NFC app which turns the phone into a virtual wallet.

The device will sell for $200 with contract, and is available now.

One catch with the phone being LTE, however, is that Sprint does not actually have an LTE network yet. The company is transitioning from WiMax to LTE and the network will only be available in 10 cities over the summer before rolling out more widespread in 2013.



In terms of Google Wallet, the mobile payment system is fully supported and Google will even give you $50 for activating within a week of buying the phone.

And if they started up the network first you would be crying that there aren't any phones.
