Last week Sprint announced a new member of the EVO family, the HTC EVO Design 4G. If you remember, in 2010 when the original HTC EVO 4G was released, it changed the Android world. It was way ahead of any other phone out there at the time.
Both the Motorola Admiral and HTC EVO Design 4G are available for $99.99 on a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. The EVO Design 4G is a world phone with a 4.0-inch qHD display and a 1.2GHz CPU – not dual core, unfortunately. The Motorola Admiral features a processor with the same clock speed and a QWERTY keyboard below its 3.1-inch display. Motorola’s Admiral is also designed to military specifications and features [...]
Sprint owned Boost Mobile has had the Samsung Transform Ultra for quite some time. But now, Boost Mobile’s parent company has announced they will begin selling the handset. Sprint announced that the Samsung Transform Ultra will feature Android 2.3 with Sprint ID, a 1 GHz processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. In Sprint’s word, not too much changes from the Boost Mobile version of the device. Pricing and release date details were not released with this announcement.

We were already sure that Sprint would be killing unlimited data pretty soon, but this looks to be the first step in the process. Sprint is now axing unlimited data for Mobile Broadband plans – as seen in the picture above. Instead of getting your allotment of 3G and unlimited 4G you are getting your allotment of 3G combined with 4G. For example if you have the 3GB of 3G plan it would be 3GB of both 3G and 4G together.
It is important to note here that this does not affect your smartphone data plan, and for those of you with a smartphone, you will still have unlimited data. But that may change in the very near future. Since the rest of the major US carriers have [...]

Just like its international variant, the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch on the Sprint network packs the same 1.2-GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor. However, the Sprint variant has a larger 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display that is simply stunning.
The Epic 4G Touch also includes other impressive specs such as an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording abilities, a 2.0-megapixel secondary camera for video chat, a 1800-mAh battery for exceptional battery life–all packed into a super thin, sleek design measuring only 9.66 mm thick. Pulling the strings together underneath is Samsung TouchWiz 4.0 on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
The yet-unannounced, nay released, Motorola Admiral bound for Sprint has been sighted in wild photos recently–and the Android QWERTY smartphone looks like it has the BlackBerry right in its crosshairs.
From first glance, the Motorola Admiral is not the prettiest phone, nor is it the slimmest. But then again, Motorola isn’t really known to release good-looking devices into the wild.
The Motorola Admiral seems to share features from the Motorola DROID Pro, fancying a full BlackBerry-style 4-row curved QWERTY keyboard, a 3.1-inch VGA touchscreen, and four soft buttons in the front. The rear features a 5-megapixel camera that also shoots 720p HD [...]
A few years ago, carriers had to decide which “4G” technology to choose going forward. Wimax was supposed to be ready at least 2-3 years before LTE, it also had the support of Intel, and was more “open” than LTE, with less restrictions set by carriers (a boon to customers). So when they had to choose which one to go, Sprint probably made the right choice with Wimax, however it’s their slow time-to-market that ended up killing the Wimax dream.
Sprint basically launched their Wimax network only 6 months before Verizon, and on top of all, LTE was already 2-3x faster at launch (now it’s much faster). I’m sure that when Sprint saw [...]
Presumably intending to highlight how Sprint’s upcoming Samsung Epic 4G Touch would fare in comparison to other competing devices on other mobile carriers, the most recently updated Sprint Playbook also mentioned the yet-unannounced, nay unconfirmed but rumored, HTC Holiday bound for AT&T–and even pegged a release date for it.
The HTC Holiday appeared on a comparison table said to be from the Sprint Playbook. A tipster sent several pages of the Sprint Playbook to Android Central.
According to the comparison table, the HTC Holiday is set for release some time this month.
The table shows specs and features of Sprint’s own Samsung Epic 4G [...]
After fears of its bypassing the U.S. and after Hurricane Irene pushed back its unveiling event one day later, the world-famous Samsung Galaxy S II was officially announced today and will be arriving on mobile carriers Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T.
Sprint’s variant will be in stores starting September 16 for US$200 (with 2-year contract). It will be called the Samsung Epic 4G Touch (not the Samsung Epic Touch 4G or the Samsung Galaxy Within as initially rumored). Sprint also announced that it will start accepting preorders for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch starting today.
Neither AT&T nor T-Mobile attached release dates or pricing to their official [...]
