Regional Wireless Carrier I Wireless Launches The GSM-Based Samsung Galaxy Nexus Smartphone



If you are a subscriber of regional wireless carrier I Wireless (which is based off T-Mobile), today is your lucky day. News has surfaced I Wireless will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone and will be available for $199.99 (after a mail-in rebate) on contract or $609.99 if you have some dollars to spend and buy it off-contract. That means the lucky few of you who have been interested in the attractive smartphone, but didn’t want to switch to a certain red colored CDMA-based carrier or previously splurge an arm and a leg for the unlocked GSM version will now have the opportunity to own the smartphone which will run on the smooth EDGE/HSPA+ wireless spectrum powered by T-Mobile.

Speaking of T-Mobile, the phone’s arrival on I Wireless may possibly be an indication of something bigger. Considering the original G1, Nexus One and Nexus S smartphones operated on T-Mobile bands, it has been a bit unusual to not see the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus officially on T-Mobile to say the least. Perhaps T-Mo is slyly plotting to bring the device to its stores eventually? Of course nothing is concrete or official, but you can’t help but wonder about the possiblity.
