Google itself may have thrown the pricing situation out of whack by offering up a contract-free GSM version of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus for just 9, but those adhering to Sprint’s plans can’t make use of that, anyway. The other CDMA / LTE-infused Galaxy Nexus is now shipping from Sprint, several months ahead of its first LTE rollout. 9.99 on a two-year contract nets you a device, while you can snag one for 9.99 sans any strings. It’s also available in stores nationwide for those who’d prefer to try before they buy, and yes, Sprint users who activate a Google Wallet account within a week of activation will receive a instant credit and an additional within three weeks. Just try to ignore that Galaxy S III that’ll launch next month, okay? (It’s not a pure Google device, anyway.)
