The HTC Supersonic – the Android HD2 for Sprint with WiMAX support?
Some time ago we reported about a list of devices that had been leaked on the Internet and that was, allegedly, Sprint´s line-up for 2010. One of the names on the list was the HTC A9292, although all knew about the mysterious handset at that time was it would be a classic candybar featuring WiMAX support. However, more details on it have just surfaced on the Web. According to Engadget, the information comes from a reliable source and assuming it´s true, we can definitely say the hardware features of the cell phone make it a real monster. 

It seems the codename of the handset is the Supersonic and it has already been mentioned on HTC´s list of Android-based cell phones. The device will be similar to the HTC HD2 and equipped with 4.3-inch display and fast processor (that still remains unknown) integrated into a really thin body. It´s interesting to know the handset will have a kickstand on its back (like the HTC Imagio) and roll out in a pearly white color that is a rare feature with cell phones of the manufacturer. The HTC Supersonic will be running Android 2.1 and HTC Sense interface, but the source of Engadget claims the version of the latter is still plagued by a great number of software bugs, which probably means the device is not coming out anytime soon. With its hardware specifications and WiMAX support, the HTC Supersonic has the potential to become one of the most powerful smartphones at the time it hits the shelves, although we better wait and see what other manufacturers may have in store for us.

Sprint couldn't have hinted at this during CES?

sprint was so quiet at ces that i almost think it was intentional. in the past years theyve made big splashes, but that pretty much blew their wad for the year. i wouldnt be surprised to see a string of high profile releases this year

I got to have this phone. Sprint make it happen ur prices are second to none and ur plans kills the competition and this phone will be a great start rollin out with ur 4g worldwide. I been with sprint 14 years. I seen the nexus one and htc hd2 in action. And that 1gz processor is a beast. Can't wait to hear more.

With Wimax Sprint is going to be able to do both. Talk on their CDMA network and data on their Wimax network.

Sprint doesnt have really bad customer service. Sprint "HAD" bad customer service. But now its actually quite good. You honestly think they would live with that name without some sort of change? I'm guessing over the years they took it into consideration because I never have to wait a long time when I have to call in to CS nor am I speaking with someone across the world for hours trying to understand what they are saying. It would be a lie to say they didnt improve.

i was a retentions rep for 2 years and before i left for school thats what was being preached "we have to turn this ship around" "our customers know that in the past theyve been wronged and we need to change their perspective" and in my call center we reached the highest return of 3rd party customer service feed back. and now that the returns process and 30 exchange policy is being enforced an they arent as bad as they were when i first started back in '07 so at this point theres really not to much that can be said about sprint. the only thing holdin them back was their selections of phones.

I THINK I MIGHT JUST STICK WITH SPRINT IF THEY START PRODUCING NEW STATE OF THE ART HANDSETS. IF THIS PHONE COMES ONLY IN WHITE, NOT SO SURE ABOUT THAT !!!

WOW im glad to hear that sprint is making a effort to make us happy....For a second that i thought they was only concerned about the network and not with the phones.even thought i used both operating systems i think i would like to see a wm7 phone they need a new one. any way i hate the fact that people keep bring up the fact of sprint's cs and the truth is there not that bad any more. and as far as talking and surfing at&t can do that because the data is on a diff single then the voice cdma uses one single and once they get wimax up and running it will allow them to do it at a faster rate
