Sprint Says It Will Launch Windows Phone 8 in 2013

Sprint has indicated that it will get behind Microsoft's latest smartphone platform next year. "Sprint and Microsoft are partnering to bring Windows Phone 8 to Sprint's customers -- operating on its 4G LTE network -- next year," said the company in a statement provided to PCMag. Sprint has repeatedly said it would not participate in the WP8 launch this year and was taking a wait-and-see approach to the new platform. This represents a change in its stance regarding Windows Phone. It hasn't offered a Windows Phone device since the HTC Arrive, which launched in January 2011. Sprint didn't say which WP8 devices it might offer, nor when in 2013 it would offer them. Meanwhile, AT&T, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless have all commenced sales of WP8 handsets, including the HTC 8X, Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 810, in the last week.
