A rumor and point of discussion about Sprint adding LTE that has been floating around for some time seems to be confirmed by internal documents viewed by an anonymous Sprint employee.
Could this be what the big announcement is about?
A Sprint employee told the mod team that he saw some interesting information in an internal report by network folks talking up 2011 projects. He said, “check out the last bit of the quote.”
“… we have become the target state for all Network Vision Core Switching platforms, including the new LTE nodes.”
For some previous discussion, check out this article posted in May of last year. (Edit: Fixed the link.)
Now, I was told at CES by someone who works with Sprint and has signed an NDA that the carrier will be releasing Windows Phone 7 devices in February.
So, maybe we’ll see Sprint announce an industry first WP7 phone (or iPhone 4 or 3D Android phone or all of the above) that will be WiMax/LTE capable.
We will definitely find out one way or another on Feb. 7 makes its big announcement.
So, what do you guys think?
