Sprint has dropped the price of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus all the way down to free on a new two-year contract.
The carrier has decided to drop the price of one of its first 4G LTE smartphones all the way down to free today, though, the offer seems to only be available to those buying the device online and purchasing the device with a brand new contract with the United States’ third largest carrier.
It’s also available to those adding a line to an existing account.
This is an absolute steal for those that aren’t concerned with having the latest and greatest smartphone. With the iPhone 5 and a new Nexus likely on the way, the Galaxy Nexus will soon be an afterthought to those that want the latest generation smartphone.
However, for those looking to get a solid smartphone that remains as one of the best Android smartphones on the market, then this is certainly an offer worth looking at.
Keep in mind, Sprint’s 4G LTE network, the high-speed data network on which the Galaxy Nexus runs, is relatively new.
Sprint launched the network in early July and as of right now, there are only 15 markets that are live with 4G LTE service. Sprint will likely launch more in the not-so-distant future
Those that need a widespread 4G LTE network though should exercise caution before buying this smartphone or any Sprint 4G LTE smartphone for that matter.
In any event, this the cheapest 4G LTE smartphone that Sprint has on its roster and given that it’s a Nexus smartphone, it definitely warrants a look.
And for those that plan on taking a look, do so soon. Sprint says that this is a limited time offer.
