imageWe 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:

Windows Phone

We’re looking ahead to the device lineup for the first half of 2013. We’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: We’ll have the latest WP device sixty days after Sprint begins offering it. Best case: We’ll have it at the same time as it becomes available in Sprint’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 Ting’s confidence is related to some knowledge that Sprint will indeed be offering one.

Thanks Screw Google for the tip.
