We posted in August that Sprint MVNO Ting has promised that they will be carrying a Windows Phone next year.
Now the company has re-iterated their pledge, and also made it clear they are in fact talking about Windows Phone 8 handsets, writing:
Weâ€™re looking ahead to the device lineup for the first half of 2013. Weâ€™ll be adding a Windows Phone device running the latest version of the mobile OS within this time. Worst case scenario for Windows Phone on Ting: Weâ€™ll have the latest WP device sixty days after Sprint begins offering it. Best case: Weâ€™ll have it at the same time as it becomes available in Sprintâ€™s lineup.
Unfortunately it seems the presence of a Windows Phone handset on Ting is very much dependent on Sprint also carrying one, but hopefully Tingâ€™s confidence is related to some knowledge that Sprint will indeed be offering one.
Thanks Screw Google for the tip.
