Sprint Playbook reveals September launch date for HTC Holiday, $350 ETF and more
We recently reported that a alleged Sprint employee had posted in a forum that the carrier would be raising the ETF for "advanced devices" to $350 starting September 9th. Score one for the tipsters as the Sprint Playbook confirms the information. The fee for upgrading will also change on September 9th, doubling from $18 to $36. Also, starting October 2nd the carrier is 86ing 1 year contracts. On the other hand, a new customer reward plan will start soon called Sprint Rewards Me PLUS. The program will let you buy a new handset every 6 months at the 2-year contract price. Without knowing more details of the program, it sounds like a dream come true for cell phone fanatics. The Playbook notes that details are coming VERY soon.
Finally, the Sprint Playbook tells us that the Kyocera Milano is coming to the carrier. With a form factor that somewhat resembles a Milano cookie, the phone will be driven by an 800MHz processor, offer a 3 inch screen, a 3.2MP camera and is powered by Android 2.3. A 2GB microSD card comes pre-installed as is the Swype virtual QWERTY. The handset will go for $49.99 with a 2-year contract. No launch date was shown.
