What does everyone think of this....Wanted to get it out to you.
Sprint event on Jan. 6 w/Dan Hesse and Steve Ballmer of Microsoft scheduled to speak.
Sprint/LG event on Jan. 7.
The reality is that Sprint has great, affordable 3G service - and the majority of people do not care. In 2010 Sprint will offer great, affordable 4G service - and the majority of people will continue not to care...
In order to make up some of the ground Sprint has lost in the past few years, they need to pick up some really amazing, innovative new devices, and the fact that they are planning huge announcements at CES with Microsoft and LG is dissapointing.
Windows Mobile is a solid OS and has a storng following among smartphone users, but Microsoft is possibly the least innovative company of all time...and LG-designed phones are perhaps the least interesting on the planet (Eve, Prada II, eXpo, Shine II, Chocolate Touch - all terrible IMO).
I know I am being a bit dramatic, but imagine the schedule looked like this:
Sprint event on Jan 6. w/Dan Hesse and Sergey Brin of Google scheduled to speak.
Sprint/(Any other manufacturer) event on Jan. 7.
You have to admit those look better...
