Mobile ESPN phones and service is now available in 575 (approximately 1/3) Sprint stores around the nation. Sprint previously announced the service would be available in about 500 stores by the end of July. The introduction of Mobile ESPN into stores marks the first time Sprint Nextel has allowed a post-paid MVNO shelf space in its stores. Previously Boost and Virgin Mobile USA were the only non-Sprint brands sold in its stores, since they could be sold as prepaid alternatives to each post-paid service. Mobile ESPN's entry into Sprint's stores also means the Sanyo MM9000 has returned after Sprint discontinued it, in the guise of the ESPN MVP.
