Default [Q] Shift2

anyone hear anything, there were a few rumors several months back, but the shift has to be going EOL. My theory is with Sprint not to happy with WiMaxx they arnt releasing many new android phones. Photon was the last flagship to my knowledge... Im really likeing the droid4, just throw sense on it and im happy i know that last statement just made a few ppl die inside lol.

Hell yes it pisses me off . IDK WTF they're thinking . Not everyone is content with a Virtual Keyboard. I don't give a rip how big the screen is if your not giving me a real KB. Plus this whole ITurd like thing with the Non-Removable Battery . I mean come on, I can think of several situations where a Batt pull has come in way handy. Not to mention what if you get a bad Battery? What then? Believe me I know plenty of ITurd owners that have had to send they're POS back because of a bad Battery. Give me a real KB, a removable battery, a removable SD Card, at least Duel Cores, and a 4" or better screen. I mean is that so much to ask?

Sprint isn't unhappy with wiax they are upgrading the network to LTE instead. Why would they release new phones now with old technology (aka wimax)? Sprint is having an event with HTC on April 4: http://www.androidcentral.com/sprint...ther-april-4-0

Maybe they will surprise all of us and announce a slider phone to go along with the expected slabs.

that would be fantastic, I guess i could live without sense, meaning a non htc phone, but I would much prefer it, altho the droid4 is quite the sexy beast. I just think the sense4 looks damn sexy as well.

That's an old article and has already been nulled... 4G has been a failure, whether wimax or lte, in my eyes its a failure... Everytime sprint has a new plan to start or expand 4G coverage, it not only falls through, but the partner company has gone bankrupt... And since lte 4G has been ruled interruptive to gps signals, that too will phase off into nothing... Sprint should make massive improvements to their 3G network before they start with new technology... Here's a petition to htc to manufacture a new slider... http://www.virtuousrom.com/2012/03/p...evice.html?m=1

No, thats not it at all. Its more like this:

Sprint's Azzi: We won't launch more WiMAX devices

Quote:
Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) is gearing up for its mid-year launch of LTE and will no longer introduce new WiMAX devices to its subscribers. Speaking at the Competitive Carriers Global Expo here today, Bob Azzi, senior vice president of networks at Sprint, said that while the company experienced success with its WiMAX handsets, including the HTC Evo, Sprint will not launch any additional WiMAX devices.
