Sprint February 24th tweet

Sprint tried to capture some magic with the Kyocera Echo earlier this month, and now it appears that they've got another surprise up their sleeve. The official Sprint Twitter account (@sprint) just sent out a  tweet asking its followers what they think the next new Sprint handset will be, followed by a hashtag telling everyone to "#comebackfeb24."

There's no telling exactly what Sprint has planned, but I wouldn't be surprised to see either some sort of new Android device or perhaps the HTC 7 Pro emerge on the 24th. That date also just so happens to be the day that Verizon will begin offering the Motorola XOOM, so whatever they reveal, I'm sure Sprint won't mind that they're stealing a bit of the spotlight from the tablet's debut. What do you all think that Sprint's cooking up for this Thursday?

UPDATE: Sprint has sent out another tweet with the #comebackfeb24 hashtag, this time asking users what thy would include if they could design a new phone. Sprint says that they'd use "a hub for gaming, music, pictures and video." Hub, you say? Sounds kinda like Windows Phone 7 to me.

Rasheeda Ali Since they made a big deal about that awful Echo DSi phone not gonna get excited about this announcement. If I were to guess maybe an Echo 3DSi?
Luke Carrico They are dropping the $10 premium data fee and announcing a new LTE network to counter the sales of the new HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon
Tony Dear III Evo 2 please come to me please I could care less if we got an iPhone or htc tab I just want an evo 2 it's the only thing worthy of updating from an original evo forget the shift.

Abric Rosengrant The obvious next step for Sprint. A triple screen Kyocera
Ashleigh Goniea I love my evo and I've never had a problem with sprint. (going on 4 years with them) and it's too bad they have a bad rep. They really do have the best price plan s and my evo rocks. I don't ever want an iphone.
Marcos Castillo Maybe 4G in southern california i pay for that shit and i can't even use it!
Zach Cline @James bass. You might want to Lear how to spell before you call other people stupid.
Victor Rios Everyone its gonna be the HTC 7 Pro not an Evo 2 or iPhone so there you it quit assuming its the iPhone!
Joshuah Landazuri maybe they well announce how stupid they are for not update thier epic 4g. "ahh yes we suck at life and we cant do anything right... we cant even update a phone." balls to you sprint i dont want 2.2 anymore i want 2.3.
Victor Rios Juan: its officially coming out sometime between the 21st and 25th of this month
Charley Hammond I pray it's the HTC 7 Pro. I played with WP7 @ an AT&T store. Loved it, but too bad T-Mobile and AT&T's service blows and costs more.

Stan Johnson I could care less. Until I get some kind of update for this 350$ phoneepic I bought from them.......I don't give a sh*t what they release.
Arturo De La Rosa I love sprint they have awesome service at an affordable price :) unlike verizon & at&t who release new phones almost every month but dont have as good service and are wayy too overpriced !
Mike Tilton @Juan I heard the OTA is due out the next few days
Juan Hernandez We need the 2.2 for epic! When is it coming out? Anyone know?
Eric Kroh that kyocera phone will be available soon..what else?
James Brian Carrera It's the hd7pro people
Xiomara-Rosa Fernandez Didn't they have a rumor about a hero 2?
Yasir Sohail Please be EVO 2
Mike Tilton Hopefully its not an Evo 2 cause my 30 day return/exchange window for my Evo just ended today.
Buckaroo Banzai Anything as long as it increases the stock price.....

Enrique Vasquez That echo was Lame!
Jennifer DeAlmeida I don't know but with my luck it will be awesome cuz I just ordered a dumbphone so I can drop my data plan and save some money. WTF?!

Frank D. Rosario that they suck
Osvaldo Rodriguez Froyo for Epic 4G! Or iPhone for Sprint! Maybe HTC Flyer for 4G!

Dillon Sappingfield Redemption time! Please Sprint make it worth while this time..
Erik Balster That they are going under
Brian Watkins Tablet,tablet, tablet.
Dan Min "So sorry but galaxy epic updates were canceled"... slowest company ever... or a merger with verizon o.O
James Bass Yall are some stupid people with stupid comments theres also nothing wrong with the evo retarts
Xiomara-Rosa Fernandez Sprint is gonna announce that to keep their customers from jumpin ship to other companies...tht they"ll knock $100 off ur bill so we can shut up!
Aaron Couts @Ian I agree about the calling coverage with verizon, In all honestly I haven't been happy with any cell phone provider. Verizons network speeds are lacking, I got a droid 2 global with them and the max dl I have got so far is 1.3 mbs, with t-mobile on a bad day I would get 3 or 4 mb dl speeds
Asheryl Gutierrez No but really I hope its an Iphone.
Asheryl Gutierrez Dual screen kyocera but WITH 4G. LMAO!
Cody Moore K is it 250$
Sam Rick The kyocera echo 2 ???!
Bryan Martens The only reason VZW has the coverage is because They have unlimited funds to buy out other companies. They dont care about their employees and charge way more for their services. Sprint should partner up with Tmo but nobody wants to take on all their debt.
Tom Chavira 5G network
Cody Moore Does anyone know when the htc thunderbolt come out at verizon
Mark Navarro LG optimus black, 2x or 3d.
Kendrix NewDay Edwards A new iPhone on their miserable 3G network
Derrius Byrd Galaxy 10.1 tablet!!! lol
Aaron Couts @Ian I have to say when I was with sprint twice each time the coverage was lacking, the customer service was horrendous and the calling when I could get a signal wasn't the best. T-mobile does have a problem coverage wise, but I would rather be with them then go back to sprint.
Victor Rios It's the HTC 7 Pro
Robert Centennial I hope they announce no more beep phones. I hated it when by boss beeped me when I was in the can.
Davann Srey Pre 3? Getting rid of the extra $10 charge for 4G service? I don't know.
Aaron Couts @Ramon I am grown just having fun, it's facebook if your taking things seriously on here that's your issue not mine.
Justin Peahi So what Big V got beat in speed tests, that's in optimal coverage, that speed dosent mean jack I you don't have coverage!
Ramon Quintero Aaron really man. Grow up
Jamel Pegues Hopefully the evo 2 & gingerbread finally
Eugene Malabanan they are going to announce that the keyocera echo is discontinued.
Aaron Couts @ramon get the knot out of your panties man lol
Cody Moore I like Verizon and does any one know wen the htc thunderbolt comes out
Shardul Sahdev evo 2 with msm 8260, 1 gb ram ,better display and android 2.3.
Ramon Quintero Its going to be the HTC 7 pro. Are ppl stupid it says what phone will they be unveiling. Going out of business is not a phone. Read before you post something idiots
Corey Ptaszek I say the HTC Pro 7
Robert Centennial Sprint is junk tmobile should be number one. They have the best policies
Aaron Couts that they will no longer be in business? "crosses fingers"
Matt Espino Why is Sprint the company people love to hate? They have vastly improved more than any carrier the last 3 years and even jd powers acknowledged them. Why is it Verizon gets awards and people love, but Sprint gets the same award and it's fixed? I really don't get it. I have been a Sprint customer for 5 years and couldn't be happier.
Matt Jackson That the mandatory 4g premium data fee is going up 10 dollars and that 2 year upgrades are now Sprint Premier Gold as well..
Anthony Pina Aguilar I think sprint & T-Mobile should combined forces, or Comcast should buy sprint!
Derrius Byrd Support Xoom!!!
Dat Boy Named Dannee Damn Jeff, thats alot of G's. Lol
Lieb Chol They need to make a new evo that's better than the original. That shift is a piece of shit. And makin 4G available where I live would be nice.
