Verizon has been pretty open with their support for Windows Phone 8, clearly stating that they are planning to release multiple handsets this year.
Sprint on the other hand has not expressed any real confidence in the OS, complaining the HTC Arrive was â€œone of the more returned products in the companyâ€™s recent historyâ€ and saying clearly they will not â€œlead the chargeâ€.
Now WinSource has managed to get a copy of Sprintâ€™s internal playbook, which they use to coach customer reps, and it carries a similar message, saying:
Right now thereâ€™s buzz about this platform, which includes PCs, tablets and a Windows 8 phone.
Currently, weâ€™re evaluating this new OS and working with Microsoft on potential opportunities. However, we have no announcements regarding Windows 8 devices at this time.
As we said earlier, while Sprint is still planning to have a meeting to decide whether they should be considering if they should look at Windows Phone 8, I would not hold my breath for a handset anytime soon.
