Where are the phones for Sprint at CES
I like to follow the news at CES. I am seeing all these new phones coming out but dont see any for Sprint. I have been with Sprint now for 9 years and I have no complaints except for the lack of phone selection. I got 2 Evo's at launch but am due for an upgrade in 30 days. However there is no phone that is worth upgrading on SPrint from the Evo. And it doesn't look like anything worth it is coming. Just wish Sprint would have a better selection. I see why Sprint can get away with the Premier upgrade because there is no phones to upgrade to. Just my .02 Wish Sprint would be more aggressive in this area.

But I was hoping for something now. I will probably wait for an EVO 2 anyway. You cant beat HTC quality and the hackability. I'm just greedy for a new device. I can't even remember the last time I had a device for 7 months.

That's exactly what I was thinking from today's announcements (aside from the evo shift), the Lg 2x and experia phones are the two without carriers. I'd bet Lg to Sprint before Sony though.
let's hope tomorrow is a betteer day since we have not officially heard from Sprint or HTC

Anybody know what time things are scheduled for today?
I am jonesing for a new phone. EVO feels a tad big for me so was leaning towards a Shift, but I would kill for the Optimus Black. Come on Sprint! I really just want to know what you are getting and when. If you are getting the Optimus Black in the next month or two I'll wait. Otherwise I'll jump on one of the EVOs.

The old rule of thumb is to never switch carriers for a phone.
If you have to switch stay clear of at&t, IMHO. I had them for a the longest time and my buddy still does. They never change, the service still blows and calls still get dropped.
Verizon is the only real choice. Too bad they will steal your bank roll.

I'm not sure how Sprint is falling behind, given that those three are still comparable with the other top end phones, and the vast majority can only move annually or biannually.

I was thinking the same thing, but this here gives some hope...
Samsung promises dual-core smartphones, new tablets for MWC 2011 -- Engadget
A dual core from Samsung...for all US carriers, wouldn't that mean that's the orion chipset that's supposed to be the cats meow?
Either way, we have CTIA and Barcelona coming up, lots of time for them to announce something, but I too was disappointed not to see anything from them at CES. A Tegra 2 phone would be nice, maybe they are getting the Optimus 2x since they already carry the Optimus now? We're just going to have to do what we all hate to do the most.....wait and see... ;(
