Sprint appeals to Android developers, wants to be their carrier of choice
Seems like many of these claims ring true in the Sprint executives' ears, and senior officials at the third-largest US carrier used the CTIA 2011's stage to make an appeal to the Android developers. The Google Nexus S 4G (our hands-on is here) is the first of the so-called "developer phones" to be released by the carrier, and Kevin Cordes, general manager of device product management for Sprint, says the company hopes it will be able to attract Android devs:
"Yes, we want to be able to attract developers just like T-Mobile has. You'll see Sprint definitely evaluate these opportunities and continue to be interested [in developer phones]."
Sprint doesn't seem too happy with the possible AT&T - T-Mobile merger, and is indeed making all the right noises to Android developers. Can we expect a flood of Sprint-branded Android phones in the near future?
