Sprint to showcase a glasses-free 3D phone on Feb 7?

0. phoneArena posted on 28 Jan 2011, 16:18

Two weeks ago we recieved an invitation to an event that is to be held by Sprint on February 7, stating that it will be an industry-first, and will have illusionist David Blaine on hand. Since the announcement, there has been some rumors of what the device will be, but today we got word from an inside source saying that it will be for a glasses-free 3D phone.

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Verizon sucks, ATT sucks, Tmobile sucks, We are cheaper than everyone else, we always provide industry first's just like 4G.

Keep paying out the rear for your service people one day you will all switch to Sprint.

wimax doesn't suck in general, it just sucks when transmitted at a frequency of 2.5 GHz.

LOL. I live in southeast michigan and my sprint signal sucks SPRINT REP. How do you explain that. AT&T, Verizon and T-MOBILE ALL have better signal than sprint in my area. Had sprint for one week and got rid of it. You need to get yer head out of your a$$.

3D phone will not do anything for me. The Evo has everything I need thus far. if you can take 3d pics, what will be the point if the majority of people dont have 3D monitors, phones, or televisions

Sprint has recently come out with a case for your Ipod so you can have Wi-fi wherever you go! if you get a calling and texting app, it could be like an iphone! (its called the ZTE PEEL)

All I can say is Haters Haters Haters wow Haters. Sprint rules quit being jealous you have nothing good to say pricks. Cheaper plans unlimited internet unlimited text unlimited cell phone calling. My fave five just turned into my fav 10 million. All for 69.99????? I phone is old news the only thing that holds att up verizon cant talk much about them but tmobile service horrible the end. 3d phone cant wait. Talk about bragging rights isnt that what getting an iphone was and still is. blah see I got the latest and greatest blah. Cheers Sprint.

children children, settle down....

this phone will appeal to many people. i'm sure sprint wouldn't release a phone and make a showcase event out of something people don't have an interest in.

and for the sprint haters... get a life. its pathetic how people take it soo personaly when it comes to cell phone carriers. We are all consumers looking for the best mobile wireless solutions. Fact is sprint does provide the best wireless value in the industry. everything else is nothing more than pure bull. opinions are typically biased. if you want to prove a point, do soo intelligently.

me personally, i don't care for a 3d phone.

It's funny how so many people say they don't care when they haven't even seen it.

y do i need to see it to say i dont care about it? i can care or not care about anything i damn well please. i dont care about 3d, i find the whole trend of 3d crap kinda annoying to b honest. i also hated avatar as i had seen it when it was called "Ferngully". 3d to me is a battery drain for no good reason. wonder how that will hold up in direct sunlight.

I don't care about the 3d screen. I'm just glad Sprint is getting a dual core phone with wimax.

34. the truth (unregistered)

truth is all major carriers have own share of issues. dropped calls, phone choices, customer service, monthly charges, etc all cause someone to say a carrier is the worst or sucks. sprint was the first for 4g phones, 4g internet, and plans were everything was included for both single and multi-line plans. whatever the annoucement is feb 7th is more than likely going to the 1st of its kind. sprint sucks in certain areas sure i admit that but come feb 7th, all carriers will then do what they have been doing or trying to do for last few years: copy sprint!!

69. Really? (unregistered)

Copy Sprint huh? So when they were losing millions of subscribers because they had horrible customer service and even worse service then other carriers followed them? Don't think so.

I agree every carrier has their faults but I have heard more horror stories from Sprint customers than any other carrier.

Get your facts right Sprint's "4G" isn't the first true 4G. There is no true 4g according to ITU-R requirements. WiMax is a joke and Sprint realized it when other carriers went with LTE. How many markets does Sprint have 4G in? Verizon has 38 4G markets and announced 49 more in Q1. When did Sprint announce more markets? November with their 5 new markets with 3 in OH... Hmmmm I guess if they charged more for their service they could put more back in their network.

3D phone is a dumb idea. If Sprint wants to stay in the game, if they wanna roll big, they need the best phone on the market, they need the iPhone. That and that alone will change Sprints' reputation, i guarantee it.

You forget that 3D requires a $10 monthly premium ...

... And that extra core is also $10 a month ;)

If sprint announces a 3-d phone Im dropping them the next day. Tired of sprints stupid slow marketing tactics. Who cares about 3-d. Its a cell PHONE. Hey sprint - how about this, why don't you offer more, non crappy phones? CRAZY concept I know. Every company but YOU are has multiple smart-phones and such. Sprint TWO THUMBS DOWN.

WoW !! Where the hell have you living? They currently have two of the top smart phones on the market. The EVO is still kicking ass and the Epic is pretty popular as well. The Style is not doing to bad either. The only thing with Sprint is that they suck in advertising.
