HTC’s EVO Lifts Sprint Out of 3 Year Slump

July 29, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

For the past three years, Sprint has lost more customers than it has gained. We like to call this a slump.

In an announcement today, Sprint said they have gained approximately 111,000 net subscribers in Quarter 2 of 2010. Net = the left over amount after the number of leaving subscribers has been subtracted with that of new subscribers. The HTC Evo has offered the Android community with the first front-facing camera, and 4G network compatibility.

Question is, can Sprint continue the trend for the rest of 2010?  The Samsung Epic 4G is landing next month, and market numbers are sure to rise as the Epic 4G offers features the other U.S. variants don’t, like the front-facing camera and a slide out full QWERTY keyboard. Sprint has made a HUGE turnaround since the beginning of 2010 and show no signs of slowing up!
