    UPDATE - 02-23-2010

    Red letter date in the history of Sprint.... April 18, 2010


    - Mark this date (Sprint business sales exec rumor), the launch of the first WiMax phone!

    Again, this is a rumor. Just passing the info on. The rest follows below:



    Since this one applies directly to my area, I will put it first...

    4g in Utah - 3 quarter (approx. August 2010) Yay!

    Everyone else-

    3-4 New phones dropping on Sprint in April. Nothing confirmed as far as what they might be, but my guesses are:

    * HTC Supersonic

    * Unknown Android device

    * Iphone (yeah, don't count on this one, but apparently the Iphone will go elsewhere in April as well.)

    Anywho, I love my Pre, but Sprint has been great too. Fun to speculate.

    I've been following the Supersonic, if/when that phone drops I'm all over it.

    I'd love to see some rumors for 4G in my area (Phoenix Metro), but so far no love for the Valley Of The Sun. haha

    The only rumor I have heard from my local Sprint people is that there definitely will be new Palm hardware available around the June/July mark. They didn't cal it a Pre 2 or give it any name for that matter. The rep in the store just said that the Palm rep had been there and told him to "look for something new" around that time.

    As with all rumors, I take this with a LARGE grain of salt, but there it is. haha

    I still haven't gotten my Pre (planning on getting it this week), but I still would rather go with that then hope for some upgrades and the inability to see what it will be ahead of time.

    The way I see it is that it will be like the iPhone 3GS coming out. The people who owned the 3G were still happy, and many didn't bother paying the ETF to upgrade to something that may have underperformed. I see these new phones in the same way. Yeah, they are great, but I will be happy with my Pre either way. In a year or so, I will re-investigate what is out there, but I won't go nuts trying to get the latest and greatest as soon as it comes out - I'd much rather give it time to mature.

    That is the main reason I waited to get my Pre. The featurephone I have is enough for what I need, and didn't want to bother upgrading when I wasn't sure what I was getting into. Of course, now that I know how great it is, I am all over the webOS and have been getting into the community ahead of time.

    Just my $0.02.

    I am still thinking the Supersonic will be the phone that is the big release in April. Pre 2 in June-ish...

    I really like my Pre alot, really needs to be a substantial hardware improvement to make me want to upgrade, something like 4g, state of art processor and a big increase in memory and RAM, plus if it's not from Palm, I'am waiting till it comes because I am really hooked on webOS.

    as much as i love my pre i would ditch it in a heartbeat if the supersonic is all its cracked up to be

    Supersonic looks great, but (a) not a virtual kb fan, and (b) the black slab just screams "iPhone wannabe".

    I would most likely stick to a webOS device as well...

    From running the emulator, to playing with them in stores - the Pre just beats anything else I have used as far as actual usage goes (Again, getting mine later this week). I have used an iPhone extensively at my friends' houses (I'm talking hours of usage, not just the once-over - and THREE different devices - two of which were jailbroken, with multitasking enabled via the third party app) and have also extensively tested the HTC Hero. I'd rank the Pre with the best overall experience, followed by the iPhone, then the HTC Hero (Blamed on Android, of course). So the Supersonic may be amazing, but if it runs Android, I am staying far far away unless it changes significantly and is anywhere near as polished and intuitive as webOS. I'm not convinced that I'd even go with an iPhone if it were on Sprint... I love webOS THAT much...

    There is no way that the iPhone is coming to ANY OTHER carrier for the year of Twenty-Ten.
    Not going to happen. (Have you seen the iPad?)

    The Supersonic looks sexy but Android...eh, not so much. I'll prolly pick one up for one of my other lines but I'm fairly certain I'll personally be using a WebOS device for many moons to come.
