Sprint customers have been left without any decent Windows Phone devices for a long time. Sprint never did a good job at advertising the one device they had, the HTC Arrive, and when it failed they acted like it was the fault of the OS. Since then they have stepped out of the Windows Phone ring until they decide it is successful enough. That time could be soon.
On Sprint’s website there is a new page called Learn more about Windows Phone 8. Under that it simply says Windows Phone 8 is coming soon! The page was last updated on January 3rd, so it is still a fresh “announcement.” It’s not likely that we’ll be seeing the device this week at CES, but we could hear an official announcement. Nevertheless, this is a nice sliver of hope for Sprint customers.
