Sprint will continue to invest in iDEN
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.

maybe they should worry more about moving their iden network off of the emergency lines first, before investing in new iden technologys, or else they wont have any subscribers come june when the government shuts them down, to sell to.

I guess sprint just went in back room and pulled a chimp out of a barrel to be new CEO. New idiot , old strategy: try to milk iden for all its worth and leave us poor customers sucking wind. GREAT STRATEGY

Sprint was such an innovator at 1st; went straight to digital when all was still playing w/analog. Now the gears are in reverse, they want to play with 20th century tech in a 21st century world
