Today Sprint announced a new device to their slowly growing, yet greatly improving line of Android devices. Sprint announced the Nexus S 4G, their fourth 4G phone. The Nexus S 4G will be sporting the same Super AMOLED screen that can be found on the T-Mobile’s Nexus S. Other specs are also just about exactly the same, so if you were hoping for a dual core Nexus S, you’re still going to have to wait. The Nexus S will be the first ever 4G “Google Phone,” meaning no Sense, no Moto Blur, just stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Sprint said the Nexus S 4G will be available in the spring.

Specs are as follows:

  • 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, supporting up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously
  • Android Market™ for access to more than 150,000 applications, widgets and games available for download to customize the experience
  • 1 Ghz Samsung Hummungbird Processor (single core)
  • Google mobile services such as Google Search™, Gmail™, Google Maps™ with Navigation, syncing with Google Calendar™, Voice Actions and YouTube™ Corporate email (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync®), personal (POP & IMAP) email and instant messaging
  • Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows the device to read information from everyday objects, like stickers and posters embedded with NFC chips
  • 16GB Internal Memory (ROM)/ 512MB (RAM) Wi-Fi® –802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® 2.1 + EDR Integrated GPS
  • 1500 mAh Lithium-ion battery

This phone looks great, but does 4G really make it worth upgrading to? I don’t think so. Will you be getting this phone? Leave a comment below.
