    Wow, price just keeps on dropping and dropping. Pretty quick for a phone that was released, what, barely 2 months ago?

    Makes you want to say......hmmmmmm
    technology is like a bag of chips - it goes stale quickly and has an expiration date when it becomes obsolete. the life span of a new phone is only about 12 months. this is especially true for the Nexus phones. we are only about 8 months away from a new Nexus. hence - Sprint needs to stop sitting on the G-Nex and release it already. this is starting to get ridiculous.

    i wish Hesse would get off his *** and start swinging. fight damn it! FIGHT!!!

    i love Sprint's value and service but the current selection of phones is absolutely disgraceful. not to mention the Wimax/LTE obsolescence issue before you even walk out the door.

    Cool post bro! How about turning off email notifications or how about you make your own thread. Not trying to be mean...just saying.

    Sent from the greatest HTC EVO 4G ever made!!!
    Somehow I knew someone would suggest turning off email notifications. Trouble is, I don't want to! For example, CaMelGuY1337's info about
    a) how his store got the screen protectors a few days ago, and
    b) how the release might be delayed by Apple being a b***h about Android
    is relevant and interesting to me, as have been the last couple pages of posts

    Turning off email notifications would stop the flow of info to me, which I don't like. Starting a new thread when this one is already well established would just be counterproductive. If people with something to say see two different threads, they're likely to only say it in one or the other, not both, effectively decreasing the size of the pool of information both for me and for others. Therefore, a new thread would help neither me nor others.

    I repeat: I like the last couple pages of posts!

    Side note: I'd prefer it if Sprint announced the release date soon, no matter when that date is. That would reduce this whole ordeal of rumors and guesswork to a simple countdown.

    2 Days?

    1-9-12 Sprint G-Nex announced
    2-24-12 Sprint G-Nex available "for sale" date announced?
    3-9-12 Sprint G-Nex available for sale?
    With the online special for Verizon's SGN being only 2 days (22nd, 23rd), a release announcement this Friday the 24th could indeed be correct.
    Gekko will win the big prize for the correct guess.
    Not sure what the prize is, but we will figure something out.

    The next guess is how much will Sprint be asking for it.

    here's a tip for those anxiously waiting for the Sprint G-Nex - go buy yourself a shiny new cheap TPU case for your old phone from ebay. it will freshen up your old phone a little bit and help you stretch out the time we have until the Sprint G-Nex is released.

    After talking with the Sprint people....they should be asking no more than $200 on a new 2 year plan. The E4GT is the only phone I've ever seen them ask more for at the time you sign on the dotted line.

    Heck man...look how long it took them to release the Nexus S 4G. That was almost ancient by the time it came out. Makes me a little worried about the G'Nex.

    LAS VEGAS Sprint is making a big jump over to LTE. The company won't be introducing any more WiMAX smartphones, Sprint's VP of product realization David Owens said today, preferring instead to bulk up its upcoming LTE lineup. And those LTE phones will be Android phones, at least for now, as Owens had some tough things to say about Microsoft's Windows Phone OS.

    Sprint launched its first two LTE smartphones here at CES, the flashy Samsung Galaxy Nexus (we have a full review of the Verizon Wireless model) and the LG Viper, which we did a hands-on with earlier at the show.

    With those two in the pipeline and more phones potentially coming "by midyear" when Sprint launches LTE, the company is pretty much done with launching WiMAX smartphones, Owens said.

    "We've just gone through an extensive set of launches," which will keep Sprint's product line fresh for a while, Owens said.

    "April, May, June, July, August, those will be very aggressive times for us," Owens said.

    And he warned that Sprint will probably over-deliver on its LTE buildout promises. While Sprint has only promised four LTE cities by the middle of the year, "By the second half of the year" means "between now and midyear," Owens said. "Other markets may launch in 2012," too.

    The Nexus S 4G came to Sprint in May 2011. The GSM model was released in December 2010. Hopefully, Sprint's Galaxy Nexus release will be more timely than that.

    But as Gekko pointed out above, they didn't announce the Nexus S until March, two months prior to the release. According to the data he has shown this is the trend with Sprint, announce a phone, two months later release it, and the Nexus Galaxy was announced in January.

    Is there any chance that Sprint crashes the party at MWC and announces a date for the GNex? Had a dream this happened last night.

    I have just noticed that on this page: http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/ it says this:

    "Sprint Galaxy Nexus - A forum dedicated to enthusiasts of the Galaxy Nexus on Sprint slated for release in July 2012."

    This would be the beginning of the 3rd Quarter and would match what Sprint's 4G LTE release says about "mid-2012"

    Curiouser and curiouser.

    Thoughts?

    My prediction on pricing: Starting a $200 minus change, later reduced to $100 minus change (on contract).

    Why: I haven't heard of any phone Sprint has released in the last couple years that they charge $200 or more for a new phone on contract, notably excepting the iPhone 4S 32GB and 64GB ($299 and $399, respectively, which are standard prices from Apple). In addition, the guy from Sprint I talked to said they'd charge $199 or so (on contract, of course). I don't remember how sure he was, but it seems quite reasonable given Sprint's track record.

    Prior history with Gingerbread: Sprint released the Nexus S 4G for $200 minus change (May 2011), later reducing it to $99.99 around the time the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G was released in Canada (July 2011). It would make sense that Sprint would follow the same pattern with Ice Cream Sandwich: release the Galaxy Nexus for ~$200, then halve the price when Samsung releases the Galaxy S III.

    Well I'm going to hope for it, I've got 5 days until my upgrade and my Hero is getting worse. I'm going to head to Best Buy sometime this weekend and see what they may or may not know. Also to take a look at the Galaxy S2.
