Quick Hands-On With Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus [Video]

Posted In Featured, News - By Mark Hearn On Wednesday, January 11th, 2012 1:10am PDT With 6 Comments

With CES officially in full swing, the Now Network invited a few of us tech folks to a little get together and low and behold the elusive Galaxy Nexus was found hanging out at a nightclub in Las Vegas! Sprint was kind enough to give us a little bit of hands on time with their first LTE smartphone (some of which we were allowed to film) and of course we couldn’t resist sharing it with you fine people.

For the most part Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus variant felt a lot like its red and international cousins, however we were advised that this wasn’t exactly a final build that we were dealing with. But enough of our rattling, check out about a minute of Sprint’s first LTE handset in action.

His love affair with the Now Network started with the release of the Treo 600 back in 2004 and has been going strong ever since. Highly opinionated and somewhat eccentric he shares his ramblings about his network of choice here at SprintFeed.

    Hey Mark, I was wondering something. I love my SprintTV and according to the Sprint rep in the video there won’t be any Sprint apps on the Nexus. Is that true? Did you see any Sprint apps on it? What if we wanted SprintTV?

    Nexus phones are pure Google, no bulk. You’d have to side-load a compatible Sprint TV .apk.

    Hey kctimmy. You can load Sprint apps on your phone by going to the Android Market, clicking on “Apps” and then there will be a Sprint specific area for you to get your Sprint TV

  4. This phone would be the total package if it was a global phone. I travel a lot so this phone won’t meet my needs.

    While they won’t be installed on the device, many of the Sprint apps will probably be available or download in the Android Market.

    WTF takes so long with builds and prototypes and “not yet the final” with Sprint phones? It has the same guts! Just needs minor tweaks which should be dialed in by manufacturers by now. It should only take the time to manufacture them. Not months of dinking around, hemming, and hawing.
