Sprint Nexus S 4G confirmed for May 8

Sprint has confirmed that the Nexus S 4G will go on sale come May 8, with the WiMAX-toting smartphone priced at $199.99. The CDMA version of the Nexus S – which runs unmodified Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on a 1GHz single-core processor with a 4-inch curved Super AMOLED display – requires the usual two-year agreement and data plan.

There’s also native support for Google Voice, which Sprint announced was incoming alongside the Nexus S 4G and for which early invites started being issued late last week. Otherwise it’s the same Nexus S we know and love, only with an extra turn of 4G speed.

That means a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, a front-facing camera for video calls, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS. There’s also NFC and 16GB of internal storage.
