Will the Pre save Sprint?
Fortune magazine has recently posted a solid article that discusses Sprint and it’s future (big thanks to William for the tip!). You can find the article here.
Personally, I think Fortune has hit the nail on the head. It’s no secret that Sprint has been bleeding customers for the past several years, and has struggled to find its identity in an increasingly saturated and competitive market. For a while, it looked as though Sprint was on the brink of oblivion (and for all we know, they were) but lately things have been looking up! With an aggressive pricing strategy that blows away any of the other major carriers, and a hot new phone coming (the Pre of course), they just might get back on their feet. Its hard to believe that today’s shaky economy could be good for anyone, but with folks looking to save money AND looking for the latest and greatest technology, Sprint might just have the perfect storm brewing.
What are your thoughts? Will the Pre be enough to save Sprint, or is it going to take more?
