Sprint has announced a press event on February 7 which has sent the rumor mill into overdrive. Since Verizon finally announced that they were going to get the iPhone 4, will this mean other carriers such as Sprint be getting an iPhone?
Network World is reporting that Sprint is inviting the press to “See what Sprint has up its sleeve.” With Apple and Verizon not having an exclusive deal may mean an iPhone coming to Sprint. But they are also reporting that Chris Burns from the Android Community blog, thinks that “Chances are it WON’T be an iPhone unless Sprint has some magical way to integrate 4G connectiveness without changing the iPhone hardware, it’ll be more than likely some other kind of wackiness.”
SlashGear are suggesting that Sprint may be about to announce an iPhone 4, with the CDMA not being exclusive to Verizon Apple might just want to spread the market for their handset. Chris Nerney over at It World is doubting that Sprint will be announcing the CDMA version of the iPhone 4, as it isn’t “yet another industry first”.
Maybe Sprint is going to announce they will be offering the iPhone 5 whenever Apple decide to release it, but this will surely not happen until June when Apple usually brings us a new handset.
What do you think Sprint will be announcing?
