"interested in a potential"
Honestly that's a whole lot of nothing. This'll maybe hit in 2013 IF Sprint actually picks it up. I wouldn't wait on this if you aren't happy with what you have now. That's gonna be a long wait.

I dunno about that. It could go one of two ways.
A) MS wants to make as big a splash as possible with Win8 and show off the whole Ecosystem, which means the WP8 devices are ready to go at the same time. Boosting WP8 by riding the coattails of Win8 makes the most sense to me.
B) MS decides to roll out WP8 after Win8 because it's either
- Not ready
- they don't want it to get drowned out in the hype of Win8
- they want to prolong and build up enthusiasm for Win8 by having a drum beat of rollouts one after the other.

I would love to see something like this for Sprint. I've been content and happy with my Arrive but would really appreciate a bigger screened slider similar to my wife's Evo that she uses. I've been a MS user since the early days and my only mobile devices have been Windows based also.
It really just baffles me how badly Microsoft has been advertising and marketing itself. They release an OS for the desktop and phone that is a pretty significant change and they will again with Win8/WP8 and there is nearly no real discussion with it. Whereas, look at Apple. They can make the most minor of changes to an already existing item, not even come close to the speculated specs the media is touting prior and they still have people per-ordering and waiting for days in line, in in-climate weather and willing to pay top dollar to have it. Only to release something else a few months later with another minor change and have people doing it all over again.
When will they get a clue? They ARE the REASON why their products don't do as well as they should.

I am a hopeless optimist. I truly believe Sprint will pick up at least one WP8 device if for no other reason than to look like they are mot falling behind. Nokia wants to be on all carriers in the US. They will entice Sprint somehow."Life is hard. But it is harder when you are stupid."
