Samsung Epic Touch LTE coming soon to Sprint???

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Saturday, February 18, 2012 - 2:22 PM MST   Has the new Samsung Epic Touch LTE just been discovered going through WiFi certification? It's possible that this is the new already announced Galaxy Nexus. However, the numbering seems to be more in-line with the Epic 4G Touch.   The model number is SPH-L710. SPH = Sprint Handset; L indicates LTE. 710 was the same number for SGS2 Epic 4G Touch. Could it possibly be??? The Sprint Galaxy Nexus has t

by Josh McDaniel Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, June 13, 2014 - 10:59 AM MDT   Earlier this year, rumors began circulating that Sprint and LG were going to release the LG G2 mini, a smaller version of the G2. The model number of the phone was even listed as LGLS885. Earlier this week, LG received FCC OET approval for that very model number.

The dynamics of carrier loyalty are shifting

by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, March 30, 2012 - 1:09 PM MDT   Prior to the rise of smartphones, carrier loyalty was tied more to network coverage – and for many it still is. Consumers don’t want to worry about signal strength or proximity to a cellular tower in order to place a call. At their most basic level, phones have to work for their primary purpose. In the early days of cellular, there wasn’t much difference between most voice-only handsets.   Of course there
