When Sprint first announced they’d be carrying the iPhone, it was rumored that they were “all in” with the device. If a leaked document from Sprint Feed claiming to show Sprint’s holiday lineup is accurate, then the nation’s third largest carrier just might be.
In Sprint’s “Jolly Happy planogram,” the only new device listed is the Samsung Transform Ultra, a relatively low-end QWERTY device with a 320×480 display and a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM 8655 single-core processor. The Motorola Admiral is listed as well, but that device is old news by now. And that’s about it.
Sprint already has some killer phones in their lineup –the EVO Design 4G, EVO 3D, Epic 4G Touch– but there’s one phone Sprint customers were really hoping to see make the holiday list that is noticeably absent from the planogram. The Galaxy Nexus.
We’ve been back and forth a couple times on if and when the Galaxy Nexus will make it to Sprint. Original rumors said the device wasn’t coming, but a leaked purchase order and a little common sense said it had to arrive eventually. Unfortunately, it looks like if it does, it might be awhile.
What do you think? Does Sprint have a strong enough lineup without the Nexus, or was that the device you were waiting for? Of course there’s still time for the Galaxy Nexus to come to Sprint before the end of the year, but at this point, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
