And Then There Was Sprint

Sprint was apparently feeling left out of the Nexus One love and issued a press release today. The Nexus One is now coming to Sprint too. The release noted that it didn’t have pricing information or a release date yet. This was clearly a response to Google adding AT&T yesterday.

Google’s Nexus One site doesn’t mention Sprint. If Sprint is expecting different pricing than the AT&T-compatible phone it indicates an expectation of subsidizing the phone. If it does, that would put AT&T in a bad spot, as three of the four major U.S. carriers would have something AT&T doesn’t. I would imagine that if Sprint indeed subsidizes the phone that AT&T’s subsidy won’t be too far behind. After all, there was speculation that three of the five Android phones in the first half of 2010 would be HTC phones.
