Sprint Galaxy Nexus pre-orders sell out in three days

updated 07:00 pm EDT, Thu April 19, 2012

Limited stock expected at retail on April 22

Pre-orders for Sprint's version of the Galaxy Nexus, begun on April 16, may have reflected very strong demand. Earlier Thursday, the pre-order page indicated that inventory had been sold out for those not willing to wait until the April 22 launch. The exact quantities Sprint will have aren't known and make it difficult to gauge actual interest.

While rapid sell-out of phone pre-orders isn't unique to the Galaxy Nexus, it is unique for a phone that has been available on another network for nearly five months, the Verizon model having shipped in December. The only tangible difference between Galaxy Nexus versions between Verizon and Sprint is support for Google Wallet, which has been added for Sprint and blocked on Verizon.

The Galaxy Nexus was the first phone to run Android 4.0, known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Regardless of version, it shares a 4.65-inch, 720p AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz dual-core chip, a fast five-megapixel rear camera, and a front camera for chat. [via Android Police]
