According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Sprint is looking to bring in some extra money by renting out the use of its excess capacity to consumer electronics makers. Sprint is in active talks with companies such as Garmin, SanDisk and Eastman Kodak, and will allow for the wireless delivery of information to consumer electronics devices other than phones. Sprint would charge based on how much data is transmitted by the consumer electronics companies to the devices. Sprint already provides the wireless downloads for Amazon's Kindle device.
