Back in Dec. 2010, Nexus S, running Android 2.3, Gingerbread was launched. Now, in addition to UMTS-capable Nexus S, Google launched “Nexus S 4G” for Sprint.
Nexus S 4G takes advantage of Sprint’s high-speed 4G data network and lets you enable Google Voice directly from the mobile app.
“We co-developed Nexus S 4G with Samsung to tightly integrate hardware and software and highlight the advancements of Gingerbread. It features a 4′ Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from everyday objects that’ve NFC tags,” stated Google.
In addition, Sprint customers will soon be able to take advantage of the full set of Google Voice features without changing or porting their existing Sprint mobile number and have it ring multiple other phones simultaneously. Calls from Gmail and text messages sent from google.com/voice will also display your Sprint number.
Alternatively, Google Voice users can choose to replace their Sprint number with their Google Voice number when placing calls or sending text messages from their Sprint handset. This feature works on all Sprint phones and gives Sprint users all the benefits of Google Voice without the need for an app.
In both cases, Google Voice replaces Sprint voicemail, giving Sprint customers transcribed voicemail messages available online and sent via email and/or text message. International calls made from Google Voice users’ Sprint phones will be connected by Google Voice at our very low rates, and Sprint customers will also have access to the rest of Google Voice’s features, like creating personalized voicemail greetings based on who’s calling, call recording, blocking unwanted callers and more.
Nexus S 4G can be purchased this spring online and in-store from Sprint retailers and Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores in the U.S.
