While Sprint has announced they would be adding two Windows Phone 8 devices to their lineup this summer, they were rather vague as to which Windows Phones. Sprint did say HTC and Samsung would be the manufacturers but could it be the HTC 8X and Samsung ATIV S?
Today at CES 2013 Sprint tried to shed a little light on the subject but left us with more questions than answers. Ryan Sullivan, Sprint's Director of Device Delivery, said that the wireless provider will introduce "current" Windows Phone 8 devices. Okay, so what does current mean?
"We're working for current product launches, and not necessarily to launch on six-month-old hardware. We're trying to work with Microsoft to make sure what we deliver is very high quality. The platform integration and the services that we want to bring aren't the only things we want to make fresh."
So that would count out the current crop of Windows Phone 8 devices, right? Does this mean a slightly re-tooled, existing Windows Phone device from Samsung or HTC. Or are we looking at two completely new Windows Phones?
Hopefully as summer draws closer Sprint will pull things into better focus.
