Default Sprint/Nextel 8700... October Release

Please Login to Remove!

just found out through a reliable source that Sprint will be offering a dual mode CDMA/IDEN phone sometime in October. I would suspect that this would be the pre-cursor or the actual release of the 8700 series for sprint/nextel

why would you take one from the other and make a title like that? and why would a dual mode phone mean that a CDMA phone is coming out?

Because my source said that it was a cdma/iden device, but couldn't give me specifics yet. I asked if it was a blackberry device and he gave me a "maybe" kinda round-about answer to it.

Dude, he didn't say that in his post. I am a RIM business partner and deal very heavyly with the carriers, and my contact within the sprint organization indicated that it MIGHT be a blackberry, he couldn't tell me for sure. I was just relaying that information

Searching the words "dual mode cdma iden" would have led you to this thread where he states his info:
