Sprint still considering the sale of its iDEN network
posted by PhoneArena Team / Sep 18, 2008, 5:50 PM
Hesse reiterated the company's position at a Goldman Sachs conference: "We don't have to do this. If we get an offer that's compelling and delivering and all sorts of other things, we'll absolutely consider it. If we don't, we'll hold on to it. It's a valuable asset." Analysts interpreted the comment to mean that Sprint had received satisfactory offers. "If there were no bidders or if the prices of those bidders were too low, there would be no point in saying they were looking at options," Pali Capital analyst Walter Piecyk said.
Hesse continued to say there was little impact yet from the weaker U.S. economy, and continued to say that he was confident in the company's ability to close a deal involving high-speed wireless Internet service Clearwire Corp.

The only phone that you could consider "exciting" is the Curve 8350i, the rest are your stereotypical iDEN phones.

Yeah watch out! What would happen is all that all the VZW fanboys and salespeople on here who have been telling everybody how bad iDEN is, would suddenly reverse field and start talking about how great it is. Not that it would ever happen. I think SHOULD sell it, but only if they can retain inter-operability with q-chat as part of the deal. That would allow them to maintain the competitive advantage they currently have over VZW's Rev A PTT, unburden themselves from the headaches of having two networks and bring in a decent amount of cash that they can use on something else (Wimax-based PTT anyone?).

You butt monkeys don't know iDEN's capability from a two cans and a piece of string. Sprint has upgraded the iDEN network and it runs better than ever. If your in business and need PTT iDEN is the best, period. If your butt monkey with a prepaid paid phone and $25 aircard your mommy bought you, you'd say sell it now because its not worth anything.
