Sprint is reportedly planning a major announcement about its high-speed 4G network this fall.
AT&T is on a mission to garner support from industry heavy hitters to help sway opinion in favor of its proposed $39 billion T-Mobile purchase.
Sprint "inadvertently" exaggerated the first-day sales of the HTC Evo 4G phone that went on sale last Friday, but it did still eclipse its own internal record for the most phones sold on launch day.
The HTC Evo 4G - which hit the steamy summer streets on Friday - has already gone platinum with temporary shortages reported across the US.
At an event in New York City tonight, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse confirmed the price and release date for the HTC Evo, the very first phone to run on a 4G mobile data network.
