As of now 3 of the 4 major carriers in the US have gotten a piece of the WP8 action, with Verizon being the latest to join the party by carrying the Lumia 822 (and an HTC device). The only carrier left out so far has been Sprint who haven’t been involved in the WP game since Nokia joined (they launched one of the original HTC devices that no one seems to remember).
But with WP8 gaining some traction and most importantly some attention, Sprint seems to be ready to get back in the game emailing the following statement:
“Sprint and Microsoft are partnering to bring Windows Phone 8 to Sprint’s customers – operating on its 4G LTE network – next year,
Hopefully Nokia are already in talks with Sprint to get them on board the Lumia train (was honestly surprised they didn’t pick up the yellow 920 as an exclusive).
If I may speculate MWC is set for Q1 2013 so we’ll almost definitely see some new devices there, one of which will hopefully be destined to Sprint.
