Now that there's a Verizon iPhone, is Sprint next?
Just when you thought you were safe from iPhone hype, Sprint has announced it has big news to tell the world in a Feb. 7 press conference hosted by chief executive Dan Hesse in New York.
The announcement sparked rumors all over the Internet: Could it be....?
Sprint and Verizon do run on the same type of network -- CDMA (that's code division multiple access). And Apple did not enter an exclusivity agreement with Verizon for the smartphone.
On the other hand, Faster Forward's Rob Pegoraro has thrown cold water on the suspicion, saying the announcement is more likely to involve a webOS device, the PlayBook or a WP7 phone.
Still, it's fun to speculate about what Sprint's major announcement might be -- and why magician David Blaine is going to be there.
