Sprint is hauling out some of its favorite devices into their Doomsday. It appears that the company is making room for newer tablets and smartphones by replacing old and outdated models.
Nowadays, we are witnessing a huge drag in the internet platform from 3G, with the introduction of 4G LTE Networks. With the growing demand for 4G LTE enabled handset, the global service provider is forced to terminate the service of many of the old incompatible models.
The models that are withdrawn from the list include Wi-Fi only models of Research in Motion’s (RIM) BlackBerry PlayBook, the HTC EVO View 4G, and the HTC EVO 4G. The HTC EVO 4G was a variant of HTC Flyer, which marked the evolution of 4G Networks in US national communication, and was made to work well on Sprint’s Now Network.
It is reported that the carrier had attempted to retreat the EVO 4G several times from the market. Since it has been a great attraction and a huge source of revenue all such attempts were annulled, but now it is confirmed for retirement.
Last Spring HTC EVO 4G, which is a variant of HTC Flyer, was introduced with WiMax facility featuring a 7- inch screen. The HTC Magin Pen and HTC scribe were special features of the device, which assist you in drawing.
RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook that features WiMax was a huge flop, since there was a 4G option for the device. Later, Sprint decided to limit the supply of 4G variant to give away more Wi-Fi only edition. Now, Sprint is discontinuing the device from the line-up.
