CES 2012: Samsung Galaxy Nexus has a Sprint advantage

2:07 /

Sprint's version of this debut Ice Cream Sandwich phone has something that Verizon's doesn't.

Everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at CES (??) Las Vegas. The reason I'm shouting is because I'm coming at you from the (town?) nightclub where I'm getting a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint. Now, this phone is pretty much identical to the phone on Verizon. It's got a 4.65 inch super Amoled HD display. It's on Sprint's new 4G LTE network and it's running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is the most updated version of Android that you can possibly get. It's got all of these great new interface going on. Some updated applications on inside and the support for Near Field Communication or NFC. It will let you do (booking?) like beam information for another phone and also (tap to?) pay. Now, what are the major differences between the Sprint version and Verizon version that was released before is that there is that there is (native?), a support for group (??) here. That means you'll be able to just have to pay a participating location if you got either a prepaid Google card or if you have a Citi MasterCard that uses PayPass, so that's really cool. That's something that the Verizon phone doesn't have yet. In terms of the other specs on this phone, it has 5 megapixel camera on the back and 1.3 megapixel camera on the front. It also has a 1.0 GHz of dual-core processor, so it's very speedy. And the design is very thin. It's light. It's got this really beautiful texture in black and silver. It's really good to hold on the hand. The screen of course is beautiful and brilliant. Overall it's really great device and it's one we absolutely love on Verizon, so we've got high hopes for it on Sprint. (??) the difference of course, it's gonna be house Sprint's new 4G LTE network phone club and that's really gonna make or break this phone. So I'm Jessica Dolcourt here at the (town?) nightclub in Las Vegas for CES. You're watching CNET TV.
