Dry those tears, dear Sprint user, because you've finally received your invite to the Nexus One party. The carrier announced on Wednesday the upcoming availability of Google's Android "superphone" and promised to release an exact release date and pricing soon.

Like the other models, the Sprint N1 will be sold directly from Google, but Fared Adib, Sprint's vice president of product development, said that a pricing plan has not been determined for the smartphone.

The Nexus One will support Sprint's EV-DO Rev. A network and will feature Android 2.1, a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touch screen, and a 5-megapixel camera just like the others. Sprint is the fourth major U.S. carrier to support the N1, joining T-Mobile, AT&T , and Verizon Wireless .
