Sprint to sell phones with AMOLED displays by Samsung

Sprint to sell phones with AMOLED displays by Samsung
What's not to love about AMOLED displays, except they are hard to find on phones sold in the US. Sprint is hoping to change that as the carrier announced today they are planing on introducing Samsung phones with that technology. David Owens, Sprint's director of customer acquisition, says that because costs are high to produce the display, they plan to introduce the technology in its phone line-up starting with more expensive phones that are suited for viewing media such as video. This should be available by next year. Casey Ryan, a product manager for Samsung, confirmed that his company would sell a phone with an AMOLED to Sprint. Even though there isn't a phone model named in particular, we can make an educated guess it will either be a Smartphone, similar to the Omnia 2 or Jet, or a full-featured dumbphone like the Impression for AT&T.

Sprint is a POS network????? You're on crack, they have a solid network, as good, if not better than the competition.

I agree, PC magazine stated that its 3G network was MUCH faster than Verizons or any other Carriers 3G. I still dont know why people are leaving though? hhmm....oh well i'm staying :D

Almost as good probably, but I seriously doubt that they are better than verizon.

But speed is just one small aspect of the total picture.

What I'm saying is that with sprint, I'm getting more for my money, 99 dollars a month for unlimited everything? Can Verizon beat that? Dont think so.

I jus dont get why people are leaving sprint. Its jus been a bad rep ever since the merge with nextel and the launch of the iphone. But the phone game for sprint is def gettin up there. Who the hell wants a from verizon when they sell u phones with half the memory than sprint phones, mostly windows mobile. Now sprint has the Pre, HTC Snap, Instinct, Touch Pro and Touch Diamond, soon to come HTC Hero, Touch Pro 2 and now these Samsung devices.

I guess than if it was about phones Sprint would be the best, or maybe thats not the focus..Verizon has over 87 million customers nationwide, even including everything you just said....Maybe its about a buisness plan, advsertising, profitibility and good customer service...Not, "to good to be true 3G/4g with "better" phones...or "Cheaper" plans. think about it would you invest your money in a falling company or a growing one....has Spring ever grown? Has Verizon? Who's boat do you want to be on the one thats sinking and no one knows why, or the one that has always been afloat taking on other vessels?

How are these GSM subs calling Sprint service bad, granted there are places w/o good service but compared to ANY GSM carrier they are few and far between

GSM has good coverage in certain area's. I have Verizon now, but I had AT&T in Texas and loved it. Moved to Diego and coverage was horrible.
