Sprint Nexus S 4G Found in the Wild by Android Community

We're here at CTIA 2011 where our pals over at Android Community seem to have fallen face first into a few "spy" photos of the Sprint Nexus S. They're noting that this phone appears to be virtually indistinguishable from the original Nexus S in every way save for a few tiny details (in the hardware, of course.)

Sprint slates AT&T acquisition plans as T-Mo goes on down-low

Sprint has demanded US regulators look closely at the proposed AT&T takeover of T-Mobile USA, warning that the deal would "alter dramatically the structure of the communications industry" and lead to a negative impact on "innovation and robust competition." If approved, Sprint says, the combined carrier would be three times its own size, and have hitherto unseen control over backhaul and other access systems. Meanwhile, T-Mobile has pulled out from an upcoming CTIA 2011 panel, pushing out a FAQ in which it attempts to placate customers confused by the acquisition news.
