Sprint's David Owns provided some information about what the company will be doing later this year and next year with respect to its phones and services. Owens confirmed that both the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment will receive Android updates, though he didn't specify to which version. Sprint is looking into offering dual-mode CDMA/GSM Android devices, but has no set plans. It is, however, considering an Android phone that offers functionality similar to Novatel's MiFi router. Owens said it will be selling lots of Android devices from HTC in 2010, and that he expects price points to come down as the platform is more widely adopted. On the Windows Mobile front, it is currently testing an update to WinMo 6.5 for the TouchPro2, but Owens wouldn't commit to a release schedule. Sprint hopes to offer Windows Mobile 7 phones as soon as possible, but is dependent on Microsoft to prepare it. As for Sprint's BlackBerry offerings, the Tour will gain Wi-Fi, and Sprint will release other Wi-Fi-enabled BlackBerries. Last, Owens noted that WiMax phones will be available next year, and that it will no longer allow tethering on its smartphones.
