Samsung launches Google Nexus S 4G with WiMAX for Sprint

Google and Sprint have announced the Nexus S 4G smartphone. The Nexus S 4G is an evolution of the original Nexus S that includes a WiMAX radio for 4G connectivity.

The Nexus S 4G has a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a unique curved front called the Contour Display. It is powered by a 1GHz Samsung processor and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It also includes a 5 megapixel rear camera with a VGA resolution (640x480 pixel) front camera. The remaining specs for the Nexus S 4G remain the same as the original Nexus S: 16GB internal storage and 512MB RAM, a 1500mAh battery, NFC support, Bluetooth 2.1, integrated GPS, and Wi-Fi with 802.11 b/g/n support.

Sprint and Google are also announcing a unique partnership with Google Voice that the Nexus S 4G will take full advantage of. Sprint customers can use their current Sprint number as a Google Voice number without having to port it over, allowing them to ring multiple phones simultaneously and enjoy Google Voice voicemail and text messaging features.

The Nexus S 4G will be available this spring at all Sprint retail outlets and online for $199.99 on a new two-year agreement. It requires a $10 per month data service charge in addition to the standard voice and data plan rates.
