Sprint and Motorola holding a press event on June 9th

Right on time. Just two days after we broke the news that Sprint and Motorola are working on a version of the Atrix 4G, we now find out that both companies will be holding a press event on June 9th in New York. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

We might see something else announced at the event, though. The recently-announced Motorola XPRT and Titanium could make an appearance at the event. But we have our fingers crossed for a Tegra 2-packing superphone by Motorola.

Sprint is currently the only U.S. carrier without a Tegra 2 device. If the company wants to keep up with competitors like Verizon and AT&T, it needs to step up its game and release some truly amazing phones. Wonderful devices is what makes people want to switch to a certain carrier. A version of the Motorola Atrix 4G is a step in the right direction, but they shouldn’t stop there.

Now that AT&T is buying T-Mobile, Sprint needs to take Magenta’s place as the primary wireless carrier for Android. Starting by being the first to sell the upcoming Tegra 3-powered Nexus 3.Now, that’s something that’d make people really want to switch to Sprint.

    Well, I already want to switch to Sprint anyway, just because soon they’ll be the only carrier with truly unlimited data plans….

    Sprint first with the nexus 3? Maybe i should be giving them a closer look…

      Yeah, with T-Mobile soon out of the picture, I really think we’re going to see Sprint get all cozy with Google. Just look at the Google Voice integration. Sprint could become Google’s unofficial wireless carrier.

    SPRINT, please covert to GSM and get UMA for your phones while you’re at it so I can leave T-Mobile for you. I hate AT&T too much to move to them and they’re the only GSM network Telecoms in the USA.
