Looking forward to CES in 2 days. Hopefully some good looking phones come out. I've been eligible to upgrade, but have been holding out. I love my Hero and was thinking of getting a new Android tablet instead of dropping $200+ on a newer phone.
Yeah, I am eligible to upgrade to a new handset in just under a month, but I have no plans currently to do so. Sprint seems set in its plan to not bring out a high end handset to the 3G only buyers, which is a damned shame in my opinion.
I really have no options to turn to for a higher specification handset after my Sprint HTC Hero bites the dust, which I hope it never does. I would LOVE a Sprint HTC EVO 4G, but I do not love the 4G fee that is attached to it.
