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? ┬áThe 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!
