Well, the other shoe just fell: there will be no phones featuring Windows Phone 7 on Sprint in 2010 as well.
Reason? It's Microsoft, not the carriers.
According to an interview with CNet with senior product manager Greg Sullivan:
Evidently, Microsoft made this decision earlier this year but are just now going public with it, perhaps to give Verizon a little respite from their public announcement today, which seemed to sell-short Microsoft's new mobile OS.
So that's that folks. Yours truly is also crestfallen, so guess I'll get an AT&T account in addition to Sprint. I suppose we can call the hounds off of Verizon, eh?
