If they were smart, they would try to be the first to market the full QWERTY BB with the trackball, etc. But I won't hold my breath!
LoL XBoogie, me and my bestfriend who are on sprint and fellow bb geeks, said the same thing. He predicted that the whole Nextel merger would just go poo poo on everything, including how Sprint used to get the nice and more modern phones first before all the nextel stuff happened. I mean look, they were the first ones to offer 1xRTT pre evdo 2.5G service and really do wonders with vision. Man i wish those days were still afoot, but unfortunately, they just need to make do of what they can get. Now they are lagging behind, and now Verizon is beating them to the punch on the phones. Though I would have to say, Sprint does have the better service plans by far, as i hate how Verizon has things setup. I currently have the 199.99 Unlimited free and clear, and thats by far the best plan for me, since i need to be both on the phone and email all the time. Hell I even have unlimited txt messaging for only $5 a month, versus the txt msging 2500 cap from verizon, which costs 3x more.
But yes, if they did offer "better" phones and combined them with there "better" service plans, man oh man, i think they would be in a better disposition.
