Report: Sprint to get Windows Phone 8 next year Although Windows Phone 8 devices have been confirmed for T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon, major carrier Sprint has been notably left out.
The carrier has today noted on the mobile operating system, promising devices for next year: "Sprint and Microsoft are partnering to bring Windows Phone 8 to Sprint's customers - operating on its 4G LTE network - next year."

Sprint is the U.S.' third largest carrier, with over 56 million subscribers. The company was recently acquired by Japan's Softbank, and also recently made a deal with U.S. Cellular for subscribers and spectrum.

This year, the company offered a single Windows Phone 7 handset, the HTC Arrive, which was low-end and sold poorly.

AT&T remains the premier carrier partner, with the new high-end Lumia 920 and HTC 8X getting there first.
