As some you guys might have heard, Japan’s Softbank announced not too long about that they would be purchasing a majority stake in Sprint, or better known by their legal name, Sprint Nextel. While we’re still unclear as to what sort of changes Softbank will be bringing about to one of the major carriers in the US and what this could ultimately mean for current Sprint customers, what we do know is that in a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Sprint, it looks like the company will be officially dropping the “Nextel” portion from its legal name, and will be legally known as Sprint Corporation. This probably doesn’t really change anything since most people refer to the carrier as Sprint to begin with. It was also revealed that Sprint does not expect to cut any jobs when the transaction takes place, which we guess is good news for current employees. The deal is expected to conclude in 2013 assuming no resistance is met and approvals have been given.
