Google’s Nexus One Headed to Sprint

Google’s direct-to-consumer sales experiment with its Nexus One smartphone may have gotten off to a slow start, but it could ramp up quickly given some newly announced carrier agreements.

On Tuesday, the company released an AT&T (T)-compatible version of the device. Now comes news that Google is prepping one for Sprint as well. No word yet on availability or pricing, though Sprint (S) says it plans to keep the latter “simple.” Odd that the company would announce the device without divulging a price.

Today’s announcement means the Nexus One will soon be available on all four major U.S. carriers and that we’ll finally get to see whether Google’s (GOOG) plan to upend the consumer-carrier relationship by selling the device directly to consumers over the Web is going to work.
