Sprint-Galaxy-S3

Don’t give yourself a hard time if you missed all the smartphones that Sprint paraded during its Black Friday promotion, because there’s more seasonal offer from the carrier heading your way. While the information hasn’t been officially released yet, we’re hearing that Sprint is readying a BOGO offer for some of the hottest Galaxy phones.

After we saw a glimpse of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the Nexus 7 in June, it only took a few weeks for the jelly treat to arrive on the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus. The same update didn’t come to Sprint’s variant until September 6 and Verizon’s much later in the month. We’re sure we’re not the only one wondering when the newer Jelly Bean will make it to the two CDMA variants.
