Sprint to finally launch a Tegra 2 powered handset?

Sprint to finally launch a Tegra 2 powered handset?
Mobile carriers are a jealous lot. When one gets to launch something new, the others all clammer for one, too. And no one wants to be the last one to finally offer its customers the latest and greatest technology. So, you can imagine what the executives at Sprint have been talking about after watching the parade of Tegra 2 dual-core phones get launched by other carriers. AT&T had the Motorola ATRIX 4G, Verizon had an online launch of the Motorola DROID X2 and T-Mobile offered its faithful the T-Mobile G2x.

According to an anonymous source for Android and Me who has proven himself accurate in matters pertaining to Sprint in the past, next month the nation's third largest carrier will offer a re-designed version of the Motorola ATRIX 4G. One difference will be the display which will be stretched to 4.3 inches for Sprint from the 4 inches on the AT&T model. The unit will also be designed to look more like the HTC EVO 4G with a kickstand on the back of the phone.

There is a sense of karma, even in the cell phone world. Sprint customers were the first to be offered a 4G phone and next month, if this reliable source for Android and Me is correct, they will be the last among the top four U.S. carriers to be offered a handset with a Tegra 2 processor.
