We first outed the $ 99 ZTE Optik Honeycomb tablet a week ago, and today Sprint has made it official. The 7-inch Android 3.2 device will be available Feb. 5. Spec-wise, the Optik is right up there with most other Android tablets. To wit:
7-inch display at 1280×800 resolution Android 3.2 Honeycomb (No mention of an Android 4.0 upgrade) Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1.2GHz 1GB RAM 16GB storage GPS Wifi [Read More...]
The ZTE Optik just made an appearance in the latest issue of the Sprint Playbook, and it’s coming in at the right price. Because Sprint is dropping their Wimax support and building out their new LTE network, this one is going to be a 3G-only device, and at $ 99 with a new agreement, of course, it’s bound to turn a few heads. (Or not, we suppose. We’ll see.) Its specs [Read More...]

Yesterday, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse made comments that suggested that the company throttles the top 1% of its customers who use the most mobile data. That was in direct contradiction to the massive ad campaign that [Read More...]
It’s a little grainy, and it’s wrapped in plastic, but here’s your first look at the white version of the Samsung Galaxy S II Sprint Epic 4G Touch. Remember that it’s the same as the original version we reviewed months ago, and it’ll be available for $ 199 on Sunday.
In case you missed it late last night, a report from Greg Bensinger of Dow Jones Newswires that stated Sprint is throttling the top 1 percent of its unlimited users was not correct. (Dow Jones has yet to update its post.) Sprint today expanded on what exactly is going on, and that it continues to offer unlimited data with no throttling. It was explained thusly (emphasis ours):
Sprint does not throttle any [Read More...]
Sprint has spent millions of dollars promoting their truly unlimited data plans the past year, so many were surprised when a Dow Jones Newswire report claimed that CEO Dan Hesse said they throttle the top 1% of users. A day later and we find out Hesse was actually misquoted. It turns out he was actually referring to roaming data and not talking about postpaid customers.
