Sprint event

According to Sprint, they're making the impossible possible.  They're also hiding things in their sleeves.  Tomfoolery aside, one thing is for sure - it's one of the few events where no one has a concrete idea of what'll be announced.  Illusionist David Blaine will be on hand to perform magic tricks, and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse will be on stage to referee.

Rumors are swirling, but the consensus seems to be centered around a 3D phone, Windows Phone 7 device (HTC Pro?), and the Android-powered Kyocera Echo...or some combination of those.  I'll be liveblogging the event, so be sure to bookmark this page!  Coverage begins at 6:00 PM EST/3:00 PM PST.

Yay, I couldn't multitask before. Now I can "simultask" with the Echo (Sprint's term, not mine)!

The dual-screen functionality kind of works like a tablet.  E-mail list on one screen, e-mails on the other

Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor @Clemmie Same here! I have an Evo 4G, and I live like five miles outside of the Philadelphia coverage area.
Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor @Zach Wanna bet?
Rafael Guzman
Rafael Guzman Ill stick with my Evo.
Henry Guzman Rodriguez
Henry Guzman Rodriguez What about evo2 or Lg 3D. I had my hope up oh well
Tony Abiama
Tony Abiama The Echo doesn't look like it will catch on... its just say Kyocera, eww
Victor Rios
Victor Rios Kyocera Echo...wow Sprint made a big deal and had customers waiting for this? How stupid...besides I doubt anyone will really cough up $199+ on this piece of crap for 5 reasons; low-end manufacturer like Kyocera, dual screen isn't going to appeal to everyone, specs are similar to most devices out right now, battery life, and its just flat out ugly.
Sokphornn Phan
Sokphornn Phan Bankruptcy? Kidding :p
Jaz Lasa

Richie Barrett Jr Why sprint get like verizon have droid x droid x2 xoom other motorola have and new htc products how about nexus s mmm faster than evo on 3g 4g beat nexus s
Scott Karo
Scott Karo probably htc 7 pro, 4g windows 7 pro just started showing up in germany today
Skylor Mitchell
Skylor Mitchell Probably a 4G Win Phone 7 phone, but an announcement of a WiMax2 rollout and updates for all 4G phones to be compatible with it would be nice. It would also be nice to see some great new Android phones with Android 2.3 or higher, dual-core processor, qHD glasses free 3D screen, 1900mAh+ battery, NOT made by Samsung, nice physical keyboard like what's on the G2, and WiMax/WiMax2.
Clemmie Hooper
Clemmie Hooper The best thing that Sprint could do for me (a 12-year customer) right now, would be to accelerate the expansion of their 4G coverage areas. I already have 4G equipment - just need them to bridge the 10-mile gap between existing 4G coverage and my house!
Bryan Davis
Bryan Davis Sprint iz a peace of shit
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Sprint will never have the iPhone
Ralphie Melendez
Ralphie Melendez frist dual screen phone just posted on engadget...
Tomorroé Sun Johnson
Tomorroé Sun Johnson I'm hoping it's a 2.2 Froyo update for Epic already!!! Would love to finally have flash capabilities, among other things.
Greg Slusher
Greg Slusher Who cares...got my iphone today from big red.. That's where its at!!!
Eddy Issa
Eddy Issa Phones for 0 dollars. All you pay if so the data and calls. That's how we have it in aus. I only pay 59$ a month for my desire HD and I get $700 call...etc and 2 gig data. $0 for the actual phone.
Eddy Issa
Eddy Issa HTC tab or SE play.
Markell Simms
Markell Simms Its gunna be the Htc 7 Pro nd Evo 2 or Epic 2 probably
Dion Durbin
Dion Durbin Dual Screen
Justcallme Ren
Justcallme Ren @ramon, a 4g iPhone is an industry first. Second of all the iPhone has been unlocked to be used on tmo so sprint is the only carrier to not have it. Sprint will carry a true 4g iPhone and probably do it before Verizon. Second, I think they will also announce the echo as well as some wp7 devices. Or maybe a phone that u can dual boot OS's.
Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor 5G!!
Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor @Garrett Lol, I hope so too!
Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor @Kevon Gingerbread for the Epic! It doesn't even have Froyo yet! How about the Evo 4G's update to Gingerbread?
Ohno Jojo
Ohno Jojo More than likely the echo, but I definitely hope there are more announcements on new devices if not I'm just going to either stick it out with my hero or say screw and get the evo
Darryl Mouzone
Darryl Mouzone Probably an Evo 2 or a phone that's going to be more powerful than the Evo.
Dominique House
Dominique House An Evo Incredible
Manny LaughsAlot
Manny LaughsAlot david blaine at the show....its a 3d phone....if its anything other than that its a waste of hype and show for bullshit like the echo phone...lg already released a dual screen phone for verizon...so i hope that echo thing isnt the main event .....get over the iphone people....the evo smacks the iphone in all directions...atleast htc doesnt "obligate" u to buy a cover due to faulty craftmenship lmao
Mike Tilton
Mike Tilton *dual screen echo * David Blaine Damn auto correct
Ryan Kuharich
Ryan Kuharich 4g iphone?
Myles J. Patterson
Myles J. Patterson Hopefully improvements in 4G speeds without changing wimax . I don't wanna lose 4G coverage on my evo .
Mike Tilton
Mike Tilton Since they booked famous illusionist David bane I'm guessing its something to do with a 3d phone or tablet (or the dual screen who). Hopefully I'm wrong and its something a little more news worthy.
Patrick Cuoco
Patrick Cuoco iPhone...
Jerry Adney
Jerry Adney They are usually anticlimactic for the average consumer. Every year they do this and every year it's never some badass new device but rather some new service they can sell you like 4G hotspot or new plans. The good stuff always starts leaking out in the Spring and then around April/May you usually start to see concrete evidence of their upcoming flagship device for the summer.
Tony Abiama
Tony Abiama I hope they announce the Evo 2 and get it over with
Jason Taft
Jason Taft New tablet
Cleveland Johnson
Cleveland Johnson A new product and/or service.
Matthew Rosario
Matthew Rosario It's probably going to be a 3-D phone.
Garrett Vincent
Garrett Vincent Hopefully its a new evo other wise Verizon Droid bionic or the att atrix will get my money
Ramon Quintero
Ramon Quintero Ppl dont understand that its an industry first! Its not the damn evo or iphone. Its going to be something no other carrier has
Garrett Vincent
Garrett Vincent That hopefully l theyre suing Samsung for being an aweful company
Victor Rios
Victor Rios Most likely the Kyocera Echo but this is too big of an event to release that type of phone...I hear it'll probably be the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play "Playstation Phone" but we'll find out later.
Gerardo Ortega
Gerardo Ortega Evo is way better than iPhone,Sprint doesn't did iphone.
Phil Adatan
Phil Adatan It's the Zack Morris "Saved By The Bell Phone" The Mr. Belding Edition
Gerardo Ortega
Gerardo Ortega EVO2?
Albert Galvan
Albert Galvan epicc 2?
Shawn Meadows
Shawn Meadows Its "an industry first", so that means pretty much ALL of the comments before this one aren't it.
Ohno Jojo
Ohno Jojo They're gonna announce the kyocera echo. Supposedly it has a dual screen with a hinge mechanism on it where one screen can be flipped to the back of the other screen, somewhat like the keyboard of the the moto backflip. I think anyways lol, thats what other sites are reporting.
