    We've got to hand it to Sprint for not dallying when it comes to getting updates out to smartphones it's only just begun selling. First it hits Samsung Replenish owners up with a few bugfixes the same weekend the phone goes up for sale, and now we've learned that the also-Samsung-made Nexus S 4G is in a similar boat, with a maintenance update of its own already going out OTA. It's no secret that Sprint sort of jumped the gun on Nexus S 4G sales, letting some customers pick theirs up as early as mid-last-week. Sales officially began yesterday, so by now there should be plenty of new owners ...

    Sprint is supposed to start selling the Samsung/Google Nexus S 4G in just a couple days, on this Sunday, May 8. Patience may be a virtue, but if you want to get a head start on some WiMAX-powered Android action, there are reports of numerous customers successfully being able to buy a Nexus S 4G at Sprint stores, as of right now. Just like the pre-release Droid Charge sales we've heard about, success seems to be very hit-or-miss. There's also a lot of unsubstantiated information out there, so some of the reports on store policies may be the results of misunderstandings or gaps in ...

    Less than an hour after Verizon announced the availability of the HTC Droid Incredible 2, Samsung is out of the gate with pricing and a firm release date for the 4G-capable Nexus S. The WiMax-capable Nexus S will be available on May 8 for $199.99 with a new two year contract. The Nexus S on Sprint is the same Nexus S that we reviewed back in December of last year but with WiMax and a slightly different backing. It's powered by a capable 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird CPU with 512MB of RAM. The crisp display is 4" and uses Super AMOLED technology with WVGA resolution. The display is also curved, ...

    Sprint announced the Samsung-made Google Nexus S 4G one month ago and Best Buy had the smartphone -- pretty much like the Nexus S sans 4G -- on pre-order since day one. Now the smartphone is available to purchase for $199.99 with a new 2-year contract but unfortunately no shipping date yet. The Samsung Nexus S 4G is basically your typical Nexus S with WiMAX support. The rest is the same: 1GHz Samsung processor, four-inch SuperAMOLED contour display, 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability (supporting up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously), 512MB ROM, 16GB internal storage, five-megapixel ...

    Best Buy is taking pre-orders for the WiMAX-enabled Nexus S 4G coming to Sprint, but just when will the phone finally be available? We had seen some evidence pointing to April 18, but haven't heard anything else to confirm that date. Now Best Buy had to go and get us hopeful about a possible release much earlier than we were expecting, updating its pre-order page to advise that the smartphone would start shipping on April 6, this coming Wednesday. The retailer has since edited the page, going to back to a "Coming Soon" status, so now we're stuck playing the was-that-a-leak-or-a-typo game. ...

    With the news last week that Amazon was thinking about getting involved with NFC-based payment processing, it really started to feel like nearly every entity involved with smartphones had its own plan for making this idea a reality. Besides Amazon, Google and some of the carriers have reportedly been working on their own systems for letting you use a smartphone to authorize payments. Sprint may beat them all to the punch, as the company has revealed its strategy for debuting a NFC payment system before the year's out. The Nexus S 4G is on its way to Sprint, giving the carrier its first ...

    Google's Nexus S 4G on Sprint may be, for all intents and purposes, the same as the 3G version currently available on T-Mobile, but just swapping out the phone's radio for a new WiMAX-capable model has the potential to reinvigorate interest in the smartphone. Whether you've been bitten by the 4G bug and crave higher speeds, or Sprint just has better service in your area than T-Mobile, there are undoubtedly plenty of you out there anxiously awaiting Google's next model. If we're to believe the screenshot that leaked today (and of all the days to judge what's legit and what's a hoax, this ...

    Google and Samsung's Nexus S may be about to spread its wings from T-Mobile and get high-speed access to the networks of some other carriers, if the evidence we've come across stands true. An AT&T-compatible Nexus S has been hinted at by the existence of some FCC documents, using the model number GT-I9020A, with that "A" representing AT&T's network. The case for a Sprint version of the Nexus S is a little less solid, but the revelation of a 4G-emblazoned logo for the phone has us rethinking things. Sprint will be hosting an event at CTIA, coming up in just a few days. An Engadget tipster ...

    We expect Sprint to unveil the Samsung-made Google Nexus S 4G at this week's CTIA -- alongside HTC EVO 3D aka Shooter -- and guess what? Sprint's website slipped the Nexus S 4G but they reacted quickly and pulled the reference. A search brought up the Nexus S 4G, the newest Sprint 4G smartphone, "the first smartphone with fully integrated Google Voice". The Google Nexus S 4G will be equipped with a 4G-capable radio in addition to the specs of the regular Nexus S, which are a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, s512MB of RAM, 16GB storage, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, gyroscope, accelerometer, ...

    It'll come as no surprise to you that the Sprint Nexus S 4G is basically the Google Nexus S we've already reviewed, but with WiMax. And that's not such a bad thing, because the Nexus S is still a compelling Android phone that has no interface replacement, keeping the phone quick and snappy in terms of day to day operation. As Google likes to say, it's unadulterated Android. It's running with a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird CPU, the Nexus S 4G has 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The camera on the back takes photos at 5MP, and the front-facing camera is good for VGA shots. Look for the ...

    Update: Adding credence to the rumor of Sprint getting the Nexus S, Sprint has a page located at now.sprint.com/nexus. Spring only puts up these sorts of pages for real device. CTIA is just around the corner, and we'll be there come later this month. Sprint has an event planned where they're likely to unveil some new products, including two new phones, if an Engadget Tipster is to believed. First up we have a WiMax-capable version of the Nexus S, which would be pretty exciting since we really like the Nexus S, and the inclusion of WiMax 4G will make it even better. We saw the Nexus S ...

    We knew that the Samsung-made Google Nexus S is about to hit Sprint even before the carrier website slipped the information and now it's official as Sprint announces the first pure Google 4G device with Android 2.3 in the U.S. It's coming to Sprint this spring taking advantage of Google Voice integration built into the carrier's Network. The device will be available exclusively from Sprint for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade. Additionally, the Nexus S will require activating one of Sprint's Everything Data plans, plus $10 Premium Data add-on charge for ...
