Sprint Says Windows Phone 8 Coming Soon

Sprint’s relationship with Windows Phone in 2012 was strained, to say the least, and the carrier elected not to join in for the first wave of WP8 device launches. At first, we didn’t quite know what the future would hold for the platform on Sprint, but in mid-November we heard that Windows Phone was most definitely in its plans for 2013. That was great to learn, but it really didn’t help narrow-down when we might hope to see WP8 phones on Sprint store shelves; would it get invested early on in the year, or wait for the second or even third wave of WP8 phones later in 2013? It looks like the wait could be a short one, indeed, as Sprint is already talking about just how soon this hardware could arrive.

In a message on its website, Sprint announces succinctly, “Windows Phone 8 is coming soon!” Beyond that, we’re left guessing, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a more formal announcement and maybe even some sort of launch schedule come out over the next week or two.
