Originally hitting the United States and the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system on December 15 of last year just in time for the tail end of the holiday shopping season, the Samsung Galaxy 4G Android smartphone was an instant hit in the mobile marketplace. Delivering the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system to a mobile handset for the first time ever in the United States, the Galaxy Nexus 4G became an instant bestseller and flagship device for Verizon. Just recently that handset also arrived on the Sprint wireless network in the United States, and Sprint debuted their brand-new 4G LTE system in the United States just in time for this powerful smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint is on sale now starting at 49.99.

In related news, Sprint also announced that their virginal 4G LTE system is growing exponentially. Sprint plans to add an additional 100 major Metropolitan areas in the United States by the end of the year to their speedy 4G LTE network which promises speeds of up to 10 times over their previous 3G system. Aside from simply a speedy smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus 4G also delivers a large high-resolution screen, simultaneous voice and data access and high resolution video recording.

Competition is always a great thing for the consumer, and now that both Verizon and Sprint offer the Samsung Nexus 4G Android smartphone, retail price posturing has begun. Accordingly, in an attempt to steal market share away from Verizon, Sprint recently reduced the retail price of their Galaxy Nexus 4G in the United States to bargain bin levels. One of the first handsets to offer wireless Near Field Communications (NFC) support out-of-the-box, the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G supports applications like Android Beam for data share and Google Wallet for retail payment processing.

A powerful and speedy central processor is required to efficiently harness the potential speed offered by a 4G LTE system, and the Sprint Galaxy Nexus is powered by a dual core 1.2 GHz CPU, with a separate GPU handling all graphics processing. Those two chips are part of a Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 microchip suite, and the handset delivers the most out-of-the-box, built-in data storage of any smartphone at 32 GB. 1.0 GB of RAM system memory is also built-in.

The 1,850 mA cell on board offers up to 7.5 hours of talk time from a single charge, and both Picasa and YouTube social media applications have been pre-installed. A built-in music player supports all major audio file formats, and the 4.65 inch Super AMOLED capacitive screen is both one of the largest and one of the highest resolution displays found on any mobile handset. Resolution runs 720 x 1,280 pixels, offered at 316 pixels per inch. The rear facing 5.0 megapixel camcorder provides video capture at 1,080P HD resolution.
