Samsung needs to announce a refresh of Ativ S with a lively design and upgraded specs .. not simply the current 2012 device on Sprint.
I'd like to see the device with...
LTE (should be a Sprint requirement anyway)
Gorilla Glass 3
improved Standby Times
As a Windows Phone fan myself I share the same eagerness. To stay on top of device releases, announcements are always made on www.Sprint.com/newsroom.

Not one mention of a WP yesterday by Samsung. Doesn't look like it's going to happen.
Think Sprint put up that webpage to make people think they're getting a device to keep people from jumping ship before they get bought out. They have no intention of getting a WP8 even though Verizon and Tmobile have added the Lumias with no problem.
With absolutely no mention of anything by Sprint regarding WP8, I am giving them until the release of the Lumia 925 on T Mobile.
I have been a loyal Sprint customer and have seen them pull this garbage in the past. Sprint is always last to get new devices, never support updates and they remain suspiciously silent when pressed on these matters.
The fact that they disregard a portion of their user base is alarming to me, and frankly I wouldn't be surprised if the Tiara comes along in November.
Bye bye Sprint. You blew it.
I'm having trouble with my Android phone, but I'm holding out till I can get a Windows 8 Phone. In order to make the phone limp along till either, Sprint gets a Windows 8 phone or August 1st when enough other family members are no longer under contract and we can move to Verizon, I went to the Sprint repair center to see if they could do anything for the phone. They suggested that I upgrade my phone and I told them what I was waiting for. They said that it might be a while for Sprint because one of the phones they were looking at couldn't be made to work on Sprint's network so they had to start over again. Face to palm! Why doesn't Sprint let US know what's going on instead of stringing us along trying to squeeze the last $ out of us that they can before we get pissed off and move carriers.
