While Sprint might be late to the 4G LTE game (not that bad given that T-Mobile hasn’t rolled out their 4G LTE network yet), they have certainly wasted no time and in a recent report, the carrier has boasted that they have since managed to sell a total of 1 million 4G LTE devices. This was announced by Sprint’s CEO, Dan Hesse, who was speaking at a Goldman Sachs Communicopia Conference in New York. Some have speculated that Apple’s iPhone 5 might have helped Sprint hit that 1 million milestone but we have to admit that that’s a bit arrogant, especially given that the iPhone 5 has not yet been released.
We expect that other top-notch devices like the Samsung Galaxy S3 played a part along with the upcoming Galaxy Note 2. We’re not sure exactly what the breakdown is, but kudos to Sprint for reaching that 1 million mark nonetheless. So if you were thinking about switching to a different carrier with LTE, perhaps Sprint’s continued success might be worth your consideration. [Press release]
