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.
Are you looking for an all-you-can use 4G LTE data plan? It looks like once again, Sprint, will be your only option. The carrier has confirmed that it will provide unlimited 4G LTE to its customers without data caps.
The iPad 2, Amazon Kindle, Transformer Prime, or Galaxy Tab might be the best tablets available right now, but they aren't cheap by any stretch. Sprint's new ZTE Optik is a pretty decent spec-ed tablet that only costs 100 bucks and has 3G.
Ahead of any official Sprint announcements, an online ad on CNET popped up revealing the Galaxy Nexus will land on Sprint as the network's first 4G LTE smartphone. Looks like Verizon lost its exclusive on Google's flagship Android smartphone.
UPDATE: Ars Technica reports the same as what we heard. Sprint confirmed that it will require an international roaming plan in order to use the micro-SIM for GSM roaming abroad. You won't be able to use an international micro-SIM card in your Sprint iPhone 4S. We knew it was too good to be true.
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.
Here's some exciting news for you data hogs who are sick of data caps from Verizon and AT&T: Sprint has announced that it'll officially offer it's unlimited plan for the iPhone 4S.
Well, this is interesting. Despite both AT&T and Verizon killing off unlimited data plans, Sprint is expected to offer up its same $40 unlimited plan that it offers on Android phones when it gets the iPhone 5.
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.
