CTIA 2011: Sprint debuts Google Nexus S 4G

  • Sprint has debuted Google's Nexus S 4G smartphone as CTIA 2011 kicks off in Orlando, Florida.

    The next-gen device is expected to offer "unprecedented controls and services," which are enabled by Google Voice integration with Sprint's network.

    For example, Nexus S customers will be able to easily use a current Sprint wireless phone number as their Google Voice number without having to port.

    It also allows users manage up to six different phones through a single number - with intelligent call routing and advanced features like call screening, blocking and recording.

    Manufactured by Samsung Mobile, the Nexus S 4G runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and boasts a 1GHz Hummingbird  processor, super AMOLED 4-inch touchscreen, high color contrast, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, camcorder and front-facing VGA camera.

    Additional specs include:

    • 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, supporting up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously.
    • Corporate email (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync), personal (POP & IMAP) email and instant messaging.
    • Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows the device to read information from everyday objects, like stickers and posters embedded with NFC chips.
    • 16GB Internal Memory (ROM)/512MB (RAM).
    • Wi-Fi - 802.11 b/g/n.
    • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.
    • Integrated GPS.
    • 1500 mAh Lithium-ion battery.

    The Nexus S 4G will will be available exclusively from Sprint this spring for $200 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade.
