Windows Phone drought on Sprint almost over, HTC Tiara and Samsung Ativ S to be first phones
We sympathize with you Windows Phone fans on Sprint. Here we are, it’s almost April 2013 and you’ve only had one device available since Windows Phone debuted back in October 2010. The HTC 7 Pro (Arrive) was a nice phone to start you out, but it’s time for something new. You already know that HTC and Samsung will be the OEMs making your devices when you get them early summer. But now we have a better idea about those devices – The HTC ‘Tiara’ and Samsung Ativ S.
Sources with The Verge have made it known that the ‘Tiara’ and Ativ S will be the first two phones available on Sprint rocking Windows Phone 8. While many of you on Sprint might be clamoring for some Lumia goodness, the Ativ S is nothing to turn you nose at. For specs and our review of the Ativ S, go here. However, the Ativ S you get on Sprint in a few months won’t exactly be like the ones we’re all already familiar with. The exterior might be slightly tweaked for Sprint, but the internals should remain the same.
The HTC Tiara first popped up on radar about a month ago. Going off rumors, it looks like this will be a mid-range device. Specs include a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon processor, 8GB internal storage (I’m guessing you can expand with a microSD card), 4.3 inch WVGA Super LCD2 display, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera with 1.6MP up front, and all this is powered by an 1800mAh battery.
Anybody on Sprint excited for these two devices? Would you like something else after such a long Windows Phone drought? Let us know below.
