Sprint will get Windows Phone 8 smartphones by Samsung and HTC by this summer
An announcement like this was bound to come sooner or later. After all, Sprint has already confirmed its intentions to carry Windows Phone 8 devices in 2013. That, however, is not going to happen until later this year. In fact, the carrier officially announced that it will start offering WP8-powered smartphones by this summer, meaning that we will most likely have to wait for months until we get our hands on any of them. 

So, what Windows Phone 8 smartphones is Sprint getting? Well, the thing is that we don't know yet. What we do know, however, is that the carrier is planning on introducing two of them – one made by Samsung and the other made by HTC. These could be variants of existing Windows Phone 8 smartphones, but we'll keep our fingers crossed hoping to see Sprint getting some totally unique WP8 handsets. Furthermore, both of these upcoming devices will run on the carrier's 4G LTE network, allowing their owners to reap the benefits of truly unlimited mobile data.

Currently, all of the major U.S. carriers have Windows Phone 8 smartphones in their portfolios, with the notable exception of Sprint, which chose to wait and see whether Microsoft's mobile platform will gain enough traction. The carrier did offer Windows Phone 7 smartphones back in the days, yet eventually moved away from the platform citing poor sales figures.
