    Well Sprint is there the whole 4 days but Dan Hesse (Sprint CEO) will be speaking. This is where Sprint will probably announce future devices and such. Just a heads up.

    Really think so? I am putting $10 on the table that they just flap their lips about 4G.

    Agreed about the 4g comment, but hopefully that will fall in line with a 4g phone....rumored Supersonic? Possibly? Though, at this point I am not even slightly optimistic.

    Well 4G is a given but I think they will announce some new phones since everyone else is starting to. They may not be Android phones though, we'll see.

    Sprint is now backtracking on the "summer" timeframe. 2nd article. Wonder what this means for the CTIA address. Are they going to show phones that wont come out for 6 months?

    Well, Sprint hasn't exactly been known to give specific timeframes lately, so I can't imagine they'd say "by summer", at least not until it's within a month or two of coming out :p

    While it may seem that the stars are aligning themselves. And I would like to be positive about such an announcement (of the 4G Supersonic), something tells me that it won't. True, there was the announcement recently of more cities to be added for 4G service, and that Sprint's Dan Hesse and Clearwires' William Morrow will be at the CTIA event in LAS, but being that this is the first 4G phone made by HTC for the US, and being that they are not at the event, leads me to believe that the Supersonic will not be mentioned or unveiled at the event. Just talk about 4G by both Hesse and Morrow.

    I really hope sprint has something amazing in store for us. I am not one of those people that is going to leave sprint because of their phone lineup, but I am tired of getting all the cool phones 3-6 months after the rest of the world. I want to see sprint give us something to brag about to our friends. This could be the year sprint makes an awesome come back if you pull out an amazing 4G phone sooner rather than later.

    I am referring to them speaking at the event. Naturally they will have a booth there.

    Even if they don't speak at the event, wouldn't the CEOs just say something like "Please come see our previews of these amazing devices at the Sprint, Clearwire, or HTC booths?"

    Did HTC speak during the introduction of the Hero for sprint?

    no because the hero had already been announced... there's no point in making a huge deal out of a phone that already exists that is just being ported to another carrier...

    the SS on the other hand is a HUGE deal, it has crazy specs left and right and is the first stateside 4G phone, RUNNING ANDROID. if i created that monster i'd be going EVERYWHERE with it as my rightside companion... htc would be dumb NOT to be at the SS announcement

    Correct me if I'm wrong but does most manufacturers/carriers usually bring out their latest phones near the end of the 3rd quarter or during the 4th quarter of the year? Somewhere between September and November?

    Can't say for other manufacturers but for Sprint, these are the total amount of new phones it released per quarter for the last 4 calendar years...[table][tr][td]Year[/td][td]Qtr 1[/td][td]Qtr 2[/td][td]Qtr 3[/td][td]Qtr 4[/td][/tr][tr][td]2006[/td][td]0[/td][td]13[/td][td]5[/td][td]9[/td][/tr][tr][td]2007[/td][td]0[/td][td]8[/td][td]5[/td][td]7[/td][/tr][tr][td]2008[/td][td]2[/td][td]5[/td][td]6[/td][td]6[/td][/tr][tr][td]2009[/td][td]1[/td][td]6[/td][td]7[/td][td]7[/td][/tr][tr][td]Total:[/td][td]3[/td][td]32[/td][td]23[/td][td]29[/td][/tr][/table]

    Whats interesting in researching this is the fact that Sprint has released on average 20 phones per year.[table][tr][td]Year[/td][td]# of phones[/td][/tr][tr][td]2006[/td][td]27[/td][/tr][tr][td]2007[/td][td]20[/td][/tr][tr][td]2008[/td][td]19[/td][/tr][tr][td]2009[/td][td]21[/td][/tr][/table]
