Sprint teams up with NQ Mobile to introduce Sprint Live, the next generation Sprint ID

page 1
US mobile internet service provider NQ Mobile, and US telecom Sprint will work together on the next generation of Sprint ID, called Sprint Live. Customers who opt for Sprint's Android handsets "later this year" will be introduced to a new Android launcher which combines NQ Live, an "engaging mobile desktop" with Sprint ID's customization options.

NQ Mobile describes its creation as an "always-on replacement for the wallpaper on an Android device", which delivers content and functionality the customer may be interested in. Meanwhile, Sprint's part of the deal brings the apps, widgets, shortcuts, ringtones, and wallpapers assembled in “ID Packs”, which can be installed by the user and switched anytime.

The description implies something that sounds familiar to HTC Sense's content aggregator, BlinkFeed, with the bonus of Sprint's customization options. While it's hard to predict how Sprint Live will turn out with so little information, let's hope it won't become another example of "carrier bloatware", but a pleasant experience for Sprint customers.
