In 2008 Sprint will continue investing in the Nextel’s iDEN, by “aggressively marketing Nextel Direct Connect and expanding features and functionality including combining Direct Connect with Sprint Mobile Broadband data capabilities.” This will result in new options for the customers, such as “push-to-x", which can include push to instantly send a text message or send an image, push-to-information and other enhanced features in the future. The company will also introduce new handsets supporting the network. Last year more than 90 billion push-to-talk connections were completed. Sprint also received J.D. Power and Associates Platinum Award for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction.
