It looks like the floodgates are open as Sprint (NYSE:S) is the next mobile carrier to announce that the Google Nexus One will be coming to their 3G mobile broadband network. Sprint’s press release from today comes fresh off an earlier announcement confirming that AT&T in the US and Rogers Mobility in Canada will also be carrying the Google phone.
Specific details as to timing and pricing were not disclosed though comments from Fared Adib, vice president of product development did say that they are committed to providing more value then their competitors. Could this mean that a price war is looming?
The Nexus One will be powered by the Android 2.1 operating system. This will now be Sprint’s third smartphone running on the Android operating system as they currently offer the Samsung Moment and HTC Hero. The Nexus One will not be available at Sprint retail outlets, but as expected, Sprint customers can purchase the handset through the dedicated Google Nexus One website.
