Sprint Windows Phone with Qualcomm LTE chipset is entering testing phases, tip insiders
Sprint is still in the hanging as far as its LTE network is concerned, but the inevitability of hooking up a Windows Phone to it seems to grow by the day.
Carrier insiders have tipped once again that a WP LTE handset, sporting the ubiquitous Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset, will be entering its testing phase with Sprint. That means that it should be ready for a fall announcement, and by that time both Windows Phone 8 Apollo and Win 8 itself should have been made official.
Thus we can expect a summer of juicy Windows Phone leaks, and one of the participants in them will be Sprint this time. No OEM has been confirmed for the LTE-laden Sprint Windows Phone handset, but Nokia has been in the rumor mix, allegedly been given details about Sprint's upcoming LTE network by the carrier itself.
Sprint's chiefs said at CES 2012 that they are not planning for new Windows Phone devices in the lineup until the August-September timeframe, so there you go.
