Sprint is prepping potential buyers of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone with a new sign-up page for those seeking more information about what will be the first phone to use the carrier’s planned 4G LTE network later this year.
FIRST LOOK: Ice Cream Sandwich/Android 4.0

Verizon Wireless began offering its version of Galaxy Nexus in December and it has been receiving good reviews, including from Network World’s Keith Shaw.
The phone boasts Google Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. The software has been touted for spanning smartphones and tablets, and according to Shaw’s review, enables great integration of Google services such as Gmail and YouTube.
Android fans are hoping the Sprint Galaxy Nexus might be even a better offering (there is scuttlebutt that it will feature a 1.5GHz dual-core processor rather than a 1.2GHz one, for example). And then there’s also the promise of Sprint’s unlimited data plans for its LTE service, which is expected to hit cities such as Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio early on.
Sprint is advertising Galaxy Nexus features such as a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB of memory, front- and rear-facing cameras, plus support for near field communications and Google Wallet.
