According to The Verge, there are windows phones coming to Sprint.

 

And

 

"Microsoft just announced four special hardware partners for Windows Phone 8 — Nokia, Huawei, Samsung, and HTC will have Windows Phone 8 devices running on "next generation silicon" from Qualcomm."

I'm going to be waiting forever to upgrade! Was trying to decide between the GNEX vs the Galaxy S3 vs waiting for the next Nexus and now this is thrown into the mix!

Whatever they do with these devices, they need to make sure there is a rockstar WP device on both Sprint and Verizon. It's tough to get any kind of US app development going when you only have decent phone models on carriers covering less than half the wireless subscribers in the US.

I wonder if it will have LTE.

 

28nm qualcomm - LTE built-in

 

 

I am personally excited about a competitive windows phone. In my opinion, the biggest hurdle windows phone has had is poor hardware. Give me some modern hardware that's competitive to Android and I'll give it a whirl.

Even the Lumias weren't powerhouses. With the slick smooth OS and the same Qualcomm processor as the flagship Androids, these things should be able to smoke about any other phone without their trickery that they used

Would love to see "nokia" on a sprint phone.. nostalgic.

 

Also wish sprint could get them to build the basic phones and SDC phones instead of kyocera

Hopefully by now they figured out how to make a cdma phone. More competition would be great!

 

I remember when Nokias were the phones to avoid if you were CDMA.

My Nokia 3390 was a GSM phone, and you definitely wanted to avoid that one, lol.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
