Sprint Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE landing page

Sprint's Galaxy Nexus has just passed through the FCC, which suggests the carrier might begin offering Google's latest flagship Android 4.0 device in the not too distant future. Unlike Verizon Wireless, Sprint will leave Google Wallet and the phone's NFC functionality fully untouched on the device, which means you're in luck if you've been waiting for an Android powerhouse that's capable of making NFC payments. Sprint confirmed in January that it would launch the Galaxy Nexus later this year with 4G LTE support, and it looks like that promise is being kept. The FCC filing says the phone supports CDMA/EV-DO networks as well as LTE. Hopefully we'll hear a release date in the coming months, since we imagine this will be one of Sprint's first LTE phones.
