Sprint stories

Last night, Sprint announced the HTC EVO 4G LTE (did you follow our Twitter coverage?) — one of the slimmest smartphones available on any U.S. network. Not only is it skinny, but it also has a very sharp 4.7-inch display, runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has an amazing 8-megapixel camera, a large battery and will support Sprint's new 4G LTE network. Sounds like a winner, right? Read on for our first impressions on the newest EVO smartphone.
When Sprint first moved towards a 4G network, it settled on WiMAX, which has ended up not catching on nearly as much as LTE has. LTE is the wireless tech that both Verizon and AT&T are building, so now Sprint has decided to follow their lead.
With AT&T's exclusive hold on the iPhone ending with the iPhone 4, it only makes sense that more carriers will want to get on board with the smartphone here in America. And it sounds like Sprint may be joining the fun with the next model.
The big loser in the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile merger (other than consumers) would probably be Sprint, who would end up being the tiny third carrier to the big two of AT&T and Verizon if it goes through. So, unsurprisingly, they're speaking out against it.
