Mobile phone carrier Sprint has removed the Samsung Nexus S 4G smartphone from its offering, although it had it available for free on contract only a few days ago.
Launched last year, the handset started to breathe new life a few months ago, when Google began upgrading it to the newer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but Sprint
decided that its time has passed.
Thus, users will no longer
be able to find the device on the wireless carrier’s website, though they are certain to still grab one unit from third-party retailers if they really want to have one.
Undoubtedly, the company is making room for another Android-based device for its users, yet no announcement on an upcoming smartphone has been made so far.
Samsung’s Galaxy S III is expected to arrive at the wireless carrier in the near future, while new Nexus phones are rumored for the end of the year.
