Last night we heard from Sprint that it would “soon” be offering Windows Phone 8 smartphones, but just when, exactly, and which models? The picture isn’t quite 100% complete, but this afternoon Sprint filled-in a couple more blanks, giving us a better idea than ever of its WP8 plans.
The bad news is that Sprint doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to start offering Windows Phone 8 devices, and its first won’t arrive until sometime this summer.
As for just which phones the carrier has its eye on, it neglected to name any specific models, nor explain if we’re talking about all-new devices, or just Sprint versions of WP8 phones we’ve seen elsewhere. Still, we’re not walking away totally empty-handed, and the carrier has gone ahead and confirmed that it will have phones from both HTC and Samsung.
Both models, whatever they end up being, will support Sprint’s LTE network. The carrier promises that more details will be forthcoming as we get closer to summer.
