When Windows Phone 8 was announced, Microsoft was proud to announce that Verizon had finally joined the fold, but Sprint was conspicuously absent from the partners list. The company notably stated they would be playing the wait-and-see game with Microsoft’s new phones, but it looks like they’re finally willing to step into the playing field. Sprint has confirmed to PC Mag that it will begin to offer Windows Phone 8 devices next year.
“Sprint and Microsoft are partnering to bring Windows Phone 8 to Sprint’s customers — operating on its 4G LTE network — next year.”
The only phone that was available on Sprint’s network for the initial launch of Windows Phone 7 was the HTC Arrive and it was pulled from Sprint’s line-up earlier this year. It’s interesting to see Sprint admit that Windows Phone should be on its network, though we’ve yet to see any information about what handsets might be featured. If you’re a Sprint customer, which handsets would you like to see?
