Does 'By Summer' mean 'By the start of summer'?

...or something different?  My original HTC EVO's camera has failed, the case is a duct-taped mess, and I really don't have enough release info for the Windows 8 phones to decide whether to buy a new roll.

Re: Does 'By Summer' mean 'By the start of summer'?

Duct tape fixes just about everything, I hope a whole new roll doesn't need to be used by Summer.  I'm also anxious for the Windows 8 launch.  I'm hoping it's the beginning of Summer or slightly sooner.  There's no official date yet, but you can keep posted at www.sprint.com/windows8

Thanks

I gave up on waiting, and ordered a Galaxy Note 2 today.

BrianDerm,

I apologize to have kept you waiting. The Galaxy Note 2 is a great device. We still don't have an ETA for the Windows 8 phones but we now have official word that they ARE actually coming: http://www.sprint.com/landings/windows8/index.html?ECID=vanity:windows8

Just switch carriers. I'm out of contract so when Tmobile gets the Lumia 925 I'm gone. Should be out in a couple of weeks. Sprint is taking too long and their lack of answers means it could be September or later which I don't want to wait that long for a mid tier overpriced device.

Re: Does 'By Summer' mean 'By the start of summer'?

When???? You guys said back in January you were getting devices so that part shouldn't have been a mystery. You've had that homepage up for nearly 6 months stating that you will be getting Windows Phone devices. All you've done is reiterated something that all of us have known for awhile.

You can't say great devices because these are mid tier phones priced like flagships. This is going to be the HTC Arrive all over again. I don't even know why I bother responding to you guys with your cookie cutter answers.

You guys are in the wrong here no matter how you like it or not. You can make a million excuses, but bottom line, Sprint didn't want to jump on board in the beginning, and now Sprint is blaming everyone but themselves for the delay while the other carriers have been releasing phones. You guys don't even carry the Lumia. You ignored a portion of your customer base for nearly a year and only providing sporadic updates to keep everyone's hope up and not to switch carriers.

I apologize but at this time we do not have any other official information regarding these new devices except that we will be releasing them soon.
