Sprint Finally Joins the Windows Phone Train; Lists WP8 As “Coming Soon”

With Verizon’s adoption of the Lumia 820 and the HTC 8X a couple months back that left Sprint as the only one of the large 4 carriers that didn’t have a Windows Phone device on sale.

Here’s an interesting rumor that’s come up; after all had lost hope of getting any further updates after Belle Refresh a source claims that an additional updates is in the works.

Rant: How Microsoft Are Killing Themselves (and Me) With Regional Restrictions

| January 6, 2013 | 51 Replies

Before I start allow me to make one thing absolutely clear; I HATE regional restrictions with a passion that burns hotter than the sun. I understand that in some instances it’s a must (such as Music streaming apps due to licensing issues, i.e. Nokia Music or Video streaming such as Netflix etc.), but it still gets on my nerves […]

During the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 920 in September, Nokia showed off the intricate layering of components that went inside the Nokia Lumia 920. It looked great. It’s a shame that Nokia hasn’t produced a half decent promo for the 920 since. Well, I’m quite pleased with what I’m seeing in the promo video […]
