Sprint roadmap

A Sprint roadmap recently was unearthed by Phone Arena, showing off an HTC A9292 "WiMAX bar handset." Now Engadget says it has the goods on the phone. Hope you're sitting down.

The codename reportedly is "Supersonic," which showed up a month or so ago in that giant batch of leaked codenames. It'll have a 4.3-inch display (regular ol' LED) and essentially is an Android 2.1-powered HD2 with a Snapdragon processor, with Sense on board to boot. It'll also have a kickstand, (and we're willing to bet it's not just for looks and that it'll serve as an antenna, like on the Windows Mobile Verizon Imagio, for FLO TV). It's reportedly been seen in white, but it's unclear if that'll make it into production, or if it's just a prototype model. Also, the software was said to be so buggy that any release likely is a good ways off.

So with what we "know" now, we're pretty much looking at a Android HD2 with WiMAX and possibly FLO TV. That got any of you Sprint fans foaming at the mouth yet?

If this comes out by June/July and Sprint adds Wimax to KC, I might just be leaving my Pre behind. Android keeps tugging on my heart strings and when its time to upgrade, the best of either the new Android or the new Palm will get me

c'mon verizon equivalent! i want sense!

but right now what i really want are some pictures/dimensions

If this will run on dual 3g/WiMAX, and is released by June, then by god, I'll be upgrading, as much as I love my Moment. :)

Sounds great! My dream phone would have great specs on a cheap plan with good phone service. The only thing that keeps the Supersonic from being a contender is the lack of a physical keyboard. It really is more functional and I don't think I can deal without it...

I SURE HOPE SPRINT CAN FINALLY GET WITH THE TIMES BEFORE I SWITCH CARRIERS. TAKE THIS PHONE AND RUN WITH IT.....AMOLED SCREEN PLEASE. MAKE WE STAY WITH SPRINT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have the Hero and it is the best phone currently on Sprint. I'm thinking the Hero might get live wallpapers as well in the 2.1 update that it is receiving sometime soon. As good as this new phone coming out sounds, it probably isn't going to see the light of day until mid-to-end of 2010.
