Sprint Dropping iPhone 4S Price to $149
Inventory Purge as New LTE iPhone Looms
To help purge stock ahead of the rumored September launch of the next iPhone, Sprint has started selling the iPhone 4S for $149 with a two year contract
. Apple is planning a media event for the week of September 9, where the company is expected to unveil a new, more powerful iPhone that finally supports newer LTE networks. The company is also expected to unveil a new 7 inch iPad, and a new version of the iPod shuffle. Sprint meanwhile continues to plow through deployment of their LTE network, recently announcing that the network is now available in parts of nineteen markets, with plans to cover all WiMax markets by the end of 2013.

Go Sprint Go! Go Sprint Go!
Sprint CEO talks about iPhone decision, other challenges
Q: Will Sprint have an iPad, especially as you move to faster LTE networks?
A: I can't comment on that. But it's a very good question.
I'd say that's a yes...
"We're going to start at one end of (Fallujah), and we're not going to stop until we get to the other. If there's anybody left when that happens, we're going to turn around and we're going to go back and finish it."

Re: Go Sprint Go! So there was some question if Sprint would get LTE iPhone at same time as ATT/VZW. This probably indicates... yes.
Tablets/PCs tied to a carrier is not good for consumers, it's good for carriers. Better to get WiFi tethering on phone for tablet to connect than commit a tablet to a carrier methinks.
Still no WiMax in some major markets I'm still waiting for WiMax to show up in Phoenix. But since that has been halted everywhere. I'll just wait for them to get around to little old Phoenix while bustling metropoli like Odessa, TX get LTE speeds
Good Job sprint I hope they keep their unlimited Data plan they are the best at that. Also hope their LTE network will improve so that the can take it to VZ
Dumping They have to dump them to meet their sky-high 30 million units that they bet the company on.
