Nexus One is Coming to Sprint

Rumors of a Sprint enabled Nexus One have been floating around since Google announced that the “superphone” would make it’s way to Verizon in the Spring. Then, Walmart decided to kick the rumors into a higher gear by “accidentally” launching a Nexus One coming soon page which showed 3G bands for ALL major US carriers.

Now, according to Gizmodo, Sprint users can jump for joy. Below is a letter received from Sprint Customer Solutions:

“Thank you for contacting Sprint regarding the nexus one.

Unfortunately, this handset model is not on offer as of now.

Once it is launched, you will see promotional campaigns related to the launch date, cost and the features of the handset on our Web site and other promotional media.

Thank you for showing interest in our products & services. Please let us know if you would like us to assist you with anything else.”

It makes sense for Sprint to get the Nexus One. If a Verizon version is already being made, it would make no sense for Sprint to miss out. The company has been pretty Android-quiet since the release of the Hero and Moment. The Nexus One on Sprint would mean that people could enjoy the most powerful Android device available, on a robust 3G network, at a low cost. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited by this! Now all we need is an official announcement!

    That is some sexy news right there! Bye laggy Hero, hello Nexus One.

    I think that this would be a great time for hTc to implement the option of a Sense UI download for the Nexus One. With the new iPhone coming out probably around the same time as the N1 it would be a great counter-punch to apple and att with the N1 having the ability to pinch to zoom. I know there are some of us that don't care about Sense pinch to zoom with stock android, there is the ability to turn off sunse if you don't want it. I'm just saying.

    OMG, bring it on, I'm ready for the N1.

    I hope this happens. Sprint has been subpar at supporting Android so far.

    • josh

      • Courtney

    This letter was first seen January 6th in a sprint bulletin board.

    I think it's just a poor response from a poorly trained CSR, not official confirmation of anything.

  • Daniel

    Who needs a Nexus One on Sprint? Just gimme the HTC Supersonic already!

  • hiro

    reads more like a CSR telling the customer "what they want to hear." Just trying to keep them from jumping to another carrier.

  • Scott Z (CSR)

    This is exactly what Hiro stated. A CSR telling someone exactly what they want to hear. Sprint will not be carrying the Nexus One. It will be carrying the HTC Supersonic. It's projected that the HTC Supersonic is scheduled to be released around the same time the Nexus One would hit CDMA side of the networks, so why would they even bother?

    I had a problem with my Instinct last night and I was talking to CSR about phones while we were waiting for things to finish on the Instinct and I asked him about the Nexus One coming to Sprint and from what he told me it looks like the Nexus One will be coming to Sprint in April. We will see!!!

  • cacutsfog

    Sprint will not get the N1. They are a BS corp with no vision for the future. They sell crap phones with crap service. If all you want is a cheap price on service you have found a home.

    • anon

      Eat your words! Sprint just released news that they will support the Nexus one soon! FTW!

    • Mlbreddingnest

      Well, it has finally going to come to the Sprint network and it sure does look good. You can eat your words now…..
