Sprint Nexus S 4G gets prematurely confirmed with “Pure Google”

Sprint has confirmed the incoming Google Nexus S 4G, the WiMAX-enabled version of the existing vanilla Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone. Spotted in a search of the Sprint site by an Engadget tipster - and since taken down - according to the blurb "the newest Sprint 4G smartphone" will allow users to "Experience Pure Google." That, it's suggested, will mean "fully integrated Google Voice" with "the same number for all your calls and get cool features like voicemail transcription, web calling and more." We're also expecting the usual Nexus S curved Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear camera, front webcam and integrated NFC support. If Sprint's web team's premature confirmation is anything to go by, we could well be seeing the Nexus S 4G make its proper debut later in the week at CTIA 2011. Android Community will be there to bring back all the details.

Sprint Motorola XOOM caught in wild

A live image of Motorola's XOOM bearing Sprint branding has leaked, adding fuel to the speculation that the carrier is next in line to grab the Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate. Shared by SprintUsers' r0fl, the picture doesn't indicate whether Sprint intends to put 3G or 4G into the tablet. However, rumors earlier this week claimed that Sprint was planning a WiMAX XOOM release (as well as an ATRIX 4G version running on its WiMAX network) which suggests that the carrier's tablet will indeed use 4G out of the box. In fact, depending on when Verizon and Motorola get their LTE upgrade for the original XOOM organized, Sprint could beat them to market with the first 4G model: the carrier is tipped to be launching the new Motorola devices sometime in April. Broader availability will hopefully help push down pricing for the XOOM as well, making it more competitive against the iPad 2. [via BGR]

Motorola Atrix & Xoom headed to Sprint with WiMaX 4G [Rumor]

This is just a rumor for now, so don't get to excited. I will mention that this rumor is said to be coming from a reliable inside source. So take it as you will. Apparently Sprint plans to keep things going in the right direction. After the EVO 4G made a huge entrance into the mobile market they've not really had anything big since. Many fans can't wait for the next big Sprint device. They haven't said much though, and that worries us.

HTC EVO Shift 4G gets early video hands-on by Wirefly

Wirefly want you to love the HTC EVO Shift 4G, and they want you to pre-order the WiMAX smartphone through them rather than direct from Sprint. The retailer has pushed out an early review of the EVO Shift 4G, complete with a ten minute video demo comparing it to its larger predecessor.
"The bottom line is that the HTC EVO Shift combines solid hardware with a fine display and the performance benefits of Android 2.2. If the EVO 4G was too big for you, or if you wanted a physical keyboard, the EVO Shift gives you smaller size and a physical keyboard in a well-engineered package." Wirefly
It's hardly an unsurprising conclusion - we could've told you the same thing just from seeing the various leaks - but the EVO Shift 4G is still likely to make an impression on would-be EVO 4G buyers who were holding out for a keyboard. It'll go on sale from January 9 2011, priced at $150. [youtube ZET2gMKAH2U]
