    So, I was at a Sprint store the other day helping my sister-in-law pick out a new phone (she picked Android...but that's another story).

    The Sprint guy who was getting her setup was kinda a phone geek, so we got to talking all sorts of topics. Of course I had to ask him about what might be coming out from Palm on Sprint. He said that he hasn't heard anything, but that their district manager had just sent out an email listing a couple of new 4G phones that would be coming before the end of the year. When he said none were from Palm I then asked him if they were all Android devices.

    His answer kind stopped me dead for a second. He said "The next 4G phone from Sprint will be a Windows phone." I started laughing after I finally recovered and his response was "That is the same reaction I have had from 4 or 5 people that I have mentioned that to. We sell very few Windows phones, why they want to go that direction is beyond me."

    Of course, like all "a Sprint Rep told me" stories you gotta take it with a grain of salt and I am not claiming this is what is going to happen, but thought it was interesting that everyone's reaction to his comment was the same as mine. Why Windows?

    That doesn't surprise me at all.

    From what I have seen in the past couple weeks for Windows Phone 7, it seems to be shaping up into a pretty competitive product. But we wont really know until one is actually released.

    People seem to forget that Microsoft does have quite a few things going for them in the mobile space. Especially in the business world.

    Sprint (or any carrier) would be foolish (imo) not to have an offering with it.

    People need to stop equating Windows Mobile 6.5 with Windows Phone Series 7.

    WinMo 6.5 is a heck of alot better than 6, and, with the HTC Sense UI on the HTC HD2, is actually quite impressive!

    Also, WinMo 7 has great potential to grab siginificant market share, if they can do what RIMM didnt do with the Torch and BB6 - make it enterprise friendly, with a great UI and really freaking fast! (no joke, fast is king in the enterprise world).

    I think what you just said is what brain just said.

    On a more serious note, why not Windows Phone 7? Might as well hit every possible angle. Don't be surprised if Palm comes out with their 4g entrant too, but on Verizon and LTE.
