It’s official. The next tablet Sprint will release will be 4G and it will be in the upcoming year. This is quite the upgrade since it was only several weeks ago that Sprint released its 3G Samsung Galaxy Tab, which runs on the Google-owned, Android operating system. Another surprise Sprint disclosed this past week? The new tablet may run on another operating system.
There are plenty of operating systems for Sprint to choose from: Windows, HP’s Palm webOS system and Research in Motion’s Playbook operating system. RIM seems to be the most suitable choice for Sprint as the RIM Blackberry Playbook is turning out to have many consumers interested, even months prior to its release. At this rate, Sprint could only hope to surpass Blackberry Playbook speculation with a press release of its own concerning the future Sprint 4G tablet.
Sprint is not scared of the ramifications of surprising consumers with a new tablet months after the release of its first tablet, especially with the 4G element. Many Sprint customers are skeptical of the fact that Sprint released its first tablet on a 3G system two years after the company had already been working with 4G WiMAX technologies. There has already been some criticism from Sprint customers following this release that it may be better to just wait another couple of months for the same release from Verizon. Can Sprint really trust its customers to wait for them to get their acts together about what to release when?
Sprint certainly seems to think so. “We’ve been in this market for over two years,” Paget Alves, Sprint’s President of Business Markets, told Forbes. “We’ve had a lot of time to work with our customers and build up a portfolio of 4G devices and services.” Reliability will pay out, at the end of the day. Also, the branding of all fast networks as 4G will “eventually backfire,” Alves added. “Throwing around that term will make it less meaningful,” Alves said. “Then it will be more about delivering what people expect from a ‘4G’ experience.” This may well be a stab at T-Mobile who has also announced plans for a 4G-branded HSPA+ tablet.
Until now, customers of Sprint’s 4G WiMax network have had precious few devices with which to valiantly navigate the speedy mobile broadband terrain offered them. The HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G have performed admirably in the kingdom of next-generation wireless, so you’d think consumers would be content wielding their net surfing phones in the most perilous situations where a blazing fast connection is all that stands between them and certain doom–or in this case the important text message they need to respond to. Sure those devices do the trick just fine, but in this era where having just two options is akin to insanity, Sprint customers may soon get a third– their very own “Knight” in shining armor.
The FCC has just approved HTC’s latest 4G WiMax-enabled handset with an impressive set of specs for Sprint to tack onto a growing roster of 4G-ready hotspots, modems, laptops and phones The smartphone, presently dubbed the “HTC Knight,” is equipped with Froyo, an 8-megapixel camera, 1GHz processor, 3.7 inch display and a most appealing sliding QWERTY keyboard.
Several blogs are predicting the latest member of the Sprint 4G WiMax phone family will get to stores in time for the holiday rush. We’re not so optimistic as that day as fast approaching, but it could make for a nice present for those last-minute shoppers. If it does hit the stores in the next few days, keep your eyes peeled for a few different monikers, as the ” HTC Knight” name is not set in stone strong enough to keep Excalibur. The alternate names are thought to include the “Sprint HTC Desire Z,” “HTC Speedy,” and the “HTC Evo Shift 4G.” We prefer the “Knight” if only because it brings a certain amount of valor to the act of using our cell phone for something as common as downloading a ringtone. … Read the rest
