    Finally! It's such torture watching all the speculation, especially when people are so close to being right!

    can't you email the editor/person who posted the article and ask them for a source to their information? or if it's just speculation on their part?

    It just says "according to people familiar with the matter", so I guess we'd need to find these people and blow them up too if WSJ is wrong, lol :p

    I would normally be highly suspicious, but the article does make sense, if Sprint doesn't release a WIMAX handset soon(within 2-3 months) their 4g advantage will have been for nil.

    Just a side note, as of a few minutes ago it's been confirmed that the Nexus One is coming to Sprint with an availability date announced soon, so maybe Sprint is actually trying now? Either way, N1 or Supersonic on a 69.99 unlimited data plan sounds like heaven to me!

    Nexus One hardware sounds pretty similar to leaked SS specs (from Sprint website) ..


    • Display: 3.7" AMOLED 480x800 WVGA display
    • Thinness: 11.5mm; Weight: 130g
    • Processor/Speed: Qualcomm Snapdragon(TM) 3G QSD8250 chipset, delivering speeds up to 1GHz
    • Camera: 5 megapixel auto focus with flash and geo tagging
    • Onboard memory: 512MB Flash, 512MB RAM
    • Expandable memory: 4GB removable SD Card (expandable to 32GB)
    • Noise Suppression: Dynamic noise suppression from Audience, Inc.
    • Ports: 3.5mm stereo headphone jack with four contacts for inline voice and remote control
    • Battery: Removable 1400 mAh
    I guess it comes down to if you want a 3.7" AMOLED screen, or a 4.3" OLED screen. They're both extremely thin phones, but I imagine the SS will be a bit wider, like the HD2 vs the current N1. But that depends how much Sprint redesigns their versions...

    Do you think that a 3.7" screen compared to a 4.3" screen will have a noticeable difference in battery life?

    Just asking, the moment one of these phones comes out, I'll be jumping on the Sprint bandwagon.... I was planning on the Samsung Moment, but I guess I can wait a few months more. I'll just stick to my old phone till then.... Cheers!

    same here. the N1 compared to SS ... that is a tough decision... as for screen size i don't think it matters as the SS is so much "bigger" that means more room for a larger batter so potentialy the SS will last longer but i have no clue
