RESTON, VA – May 12, 2011 — Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that on May 13 it will begin selling the highly anticipated Samsung Nexus S™ 4G from Google. The Nexus S 4G has the distinction of being the World’s first phone to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the fourth 4G smartphone to launch on Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network, making it one of the fastest, most powerful mobile phones on the market today. The device will be available on Wirefly.com for $99.99 with instant discount for new Sprint customers.
In addition to operating on both Sprint’s blazing-fast 4G WiMAX network and its 3G Mobile Broadband Network (depending on user location), the Android-powered Nexus S 4G comes equipped with a high-speed 1GHz Hummingbird processor that produces rich 3D-like graphics and faster upload and download times.
The sleek and sexy device is designed for a premium viewing experience. The 4-inch curved glass display makes the device more comfortable to hold and the brilliant Super AMOLED™ touch screen makes colors bright and vibrant and images and text crisp with minimal glare – perfect for watching videos and movies or playing games outdoors.
As the first pure Google 4G device, the Nexus S 4G offers direct access to Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates as soon as they become available. An example includes Google Voice integration, which allows Sprint customers to manage up to six different phones through their one Sprint number, screen and direct incoming calls to the appropriate phone, and even have voicemails transcribed and sent as emails (certain account types may not be eligible for Google Voice—see site for details).
Other impressive features include: 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and camcorder and front-facing VGA camera for video-chat, 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability that support up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously, and gyroscope sensor that tracks handset orientation, velocity and rotation for a smooth, fluid gaming experience.
