Hi, I'm Kent German, section editor here at CNET.com.
Today, we're taking a First Look at the Samsung Nexus S 4G.
Sprint is the first to get a Nexus device.
Now, of course, like the previous Nexus devices, this phone does have a stock UI so it is just stock Android.
There's no Samsung TouchWiz, there's no Sprint ID, there's nothing on top of it, so if you're an Android purist, you're really gonna like this.
It has the same design, a lot of the same features as we saw in the T-Mobile phone.
It's gonna have that contour design so it's slightly curved here in the profile.
That's meant to cradle the side of your head.
I wouldn't say it's a gimmick but I would say it's something that really changed my life about it, so that's one thing that's there.
We do have the same display.
It's really bright, it's vibrant.
Really nice colors.
The phone, like the other Nexus, it does feel a little light in the hand.
Below, you have the same touch controls.
On the back, you'll see the camera.
There's the flash next to it.
The phone does not have an external memory card slot so you do wanna keep that in mind.
Sprint does add a couple things to this phone we didn't see on the T-Mobile version.
Of course, like I said, it supports CDMA networks.
It also supports Sprint's WiMAX 4G network.
The T-Mobile phone did not support T-Mobile's HSPA+ service.
Also, Sprint does add a couple of options that only the carrier has, the Google Voice integration.
Sprint is promising that will be on this phone.
Again, Sprint's Samsung Nexus S 4G is very similar to the T-Mobile version.
It supports a different network, of course, adds a couple other options, and like the T-Mobile phone, Sprint's Nexus S is one of the few Android devices to offer Gingerbread or Android 2.3 out of the box,
but as far as the design goes and the basic features, it's just exactly the same.
I'm Kent German and this is the Samsung Nexus S 4G with Sprint.
