Will Sprint Carry New BB Phones?

Blackberry yesterday unveiled a new phone Q20 which brings back the classic BB trackpad and keyboard.  What are Sprint plans with respect to continuing to offer BB devices? Does anyone have a clue?

One wonders if Sprint will follow T-Mobile.  I just noticed the Q10 is no longer displayed at the San Jose Sprint Store.  Doesn't look good.  The Q10 battery can last 5-6X longer than my kid's iPhone5 7 hours.  Keyboard and intelligent word choices is phenomenal, as is the superb and fast graphic user interface, particularly with the 10.2.1.* O/S update.  I wouldn't mind a 3.5" Qxx when my Q10 contract is up.

One wonders why the Sprint customer care at its corporate stores don't even try to highlight just two of the best features of the Q10 (i.e. before they stopped displaying the Q10):  (1)  Removable $10 battery, with superb life; (2) phenomenal keyboard, for real men who do not have pointy fingers.   Even has a wider screen than iPhone 5.

Recently, out-of-work and recovering from an injury, I gave the Q10 the acid test, using the Q10 all day for phone, email, texting, blogs, news, short videos, etc.   Used 8am to 10pm, still had 15-20% battery left.  In normal life 2 - 3 days between charges is easily achieved, unless used for iHeartRadio or playing music all day.

One hopes Sprint will give the upcoming Q20 Classic (3.5") and Qxx Passport (4.5") a chance to be prominently visible in its stores, with trained staff.  I'm excited for these phones, as my upgrade path.  By then, perhaps the low cost Z3 might become available in the US, or even the Z30 (5"), for those who wish a Blackberry touch-screen option.

So yesterday the BB Passport was released with the Q20 Classic to follow later this year.  Again, will Sprint be offering these phones?

Thanks,

Verizon will begin offering the CDMA version of the Blackberry Classic in February or March of this year.  What are your plans with respect to this phone?  Will Sprint get its own version or as a minimum allow an unlocked CDMA version to be connected to its network (with full functionality)?

Sprint - when will you get the Blackberry Classic?  My contract is up, (18+ years with Sprint) I will own a Blackberry Classic soon!  Verizon launches the Classic on 2/26/15.  I may be switching soon if you don't make an announcement regarding the BB Classic.

Thanks!
