Sprint Galaxy Nexus comes with $50 Google Wallet bonus

It looks like Sprint customers really will have a tough decision to make this month. Last week we told you about the rumors regarding an April 22 launch date for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus and now the company has just made things official this week.

Fresh from their official unveiling of the brand new HTC EVO 4G LTE smartphone, it means that Sprint customers now have the option of choosing the mighty Galaxy Nexus instead.

The phone will launch on April 22nd, priced at $199 on a two-year contract with the carrier. Those who are looking to get one right away can pre-order straight away at the website here, but for those that are still on the fence, Sprint has teamed up with Google Wallet for a great little incentive for you.

As most of you should know, the Sprint version will come with Google Wallet support at launch. For those that pick up a Galaxy Nexus and activate a Google Wallet account within a month, Google will be crediting you with an instant $10 free to spend on what ever you wish. It gets better though – within free weeks of activating Google Wallet between April 22 and May 22, you’ll get an additional $40 – bringing your total free swag to $50! That’s not bad at all and what a great way to entice consumers to try out Google Wallet for the first time.

As far as we know, this offer was not available for the Verizon version of the device, so you should really take advantage of this if you are considering the Galaxy Nexus. Don’t forget that Sprint’s version will also include 4G LTE support as soon as the service goes live later this year.

The HTC EVO 4G LTE is obviously another nice attraction on Sprint, but this is $50 free we’re talking about here. Let us know if you plan to take advantage of it – remember you can pre-order the device already.

Alan, this makes me mad just to see these words: “Don’t forget that Sprint’s version will also include 4G LTE support as soon as the service goes live later this year.” The good folks at Sprint are attempting to bait we “customers” with this shallow promise of LTE service. The true state of Sprint’s LTE is 6 cities/markets by the end of THIS YEAR, with the rest of the country promised by the end of 2013. I don’t trust Sprint as far as I could throw them. Offering phones with promises of infrastructure to come is a bad deal. Sprint… Read more »
