Interesting that this "yet another industry first" announcement will come just 3 days before they announce their Q4 earnings and FY 2010 wrap-up.

Maybe it will be announcement that EVERYONE has been hoping for: sale of the Nextel unit to another buyer. That would definitely make the Sprint fans happy, and it would make the Nextel fans absolutely ECSTATIC.

Of course I'm kidding, that will not happen.

Sprint just announced the $10/mo increase for some of their smartphone customers, so it seems unlikely that the announcement will be related to new plans.

Maybe the big announcement is related to resurrecting whatever they will be calling "Qchat-II"? When they announced the 2013 phase-out of iDEN, they did say they intended to resurrect & reinvigorate their PTT offerings so as to try to keep the iDEN user base from leaving in 2013 (yes, Amarantamin & _Troper will bag on that notion, but there are still 15,000,000 iDEN subscribers that Sprint has yet to lose).

Then again, it could be an announcement related to the WiMax side. At least for a few more months, literally everything Sprint & Clear do with WiMax can be considered "industry firsts" ;-)
