First, a rumor about Google's Nexus One coming to AT&T, and now, rumors about it heading to Sprint? Shortly after Walmart's "accidental" release of a Nexus One product page featuring support for all four nationwide carriers, an e-mail from Sprint Customer Solutions comes to light. In the e-mail obtained by Gizmodo, it makes direct references to the Nexus One launching on Sprint at some point in the future.
Here's the e-mail text in question:
“Thank you for contacting Sprint regarding the nexus one.
Unfortunately, this handset model is not on offer as of now.
Once it is launched, you will see promotional campaigns related to the launch date, cost and the features of the handset on our Web site and other promotional media.
Thank you for showing interest in our products & services. Please let us know if you would like us to assist you with anything else.”
I see all of this as very speculative. First of all, this is an e-mail from Sprint Customer Solutions. We've seen rumors from these customer service groups in the past, and they haven't proved to be a reliable source. In regards to the potential of an AT&T Nexus One, an FCC filing is far more "hard evidence" than a random letter from a customer service representative.
That being said, the idea of all four carriers "offering" the Nexus One is an exciting thought. With rumors here and there about the AT&T and Sprint versions, and Verizon's Nexus One landing in the Spring, are you going to switch to T-Mobile to get the device now or wait it out?
