The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G debuted on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network and was exclusive to that wireless system up until recently. That handset has made its way to the new Sprint 4G LTE system which officially launched on July 15. In the face of stiff competition from a major US wireless service provider, Verizon dropped the retail price of their Galaxy Nexus to $0.01 on contract. To ensure that their customers paid no more than Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners, Sprint recently also dropped the retail price of their Galaxy Nexus 4G Android smartphone to $0.01 on contract at select retailers. The Galaxy Nexus is one of the first LTE capable handsets to run on the new Sprint 4G LTE system.
