Normally Sprint would be at the end of the title, but I've had it with the "Sprint is getting beaten in the x, y, z business". This week, x, y, and z all fall under the umbrella of Smart Devices.

To put it bluntly, you're wrong if you think that.

We've run articles and articles about the single fact that Sprint knows exactly what they're doing in the smart device business. Nobody has the PPC-6700, the most powerful PDA in the USA with AKU2... except Sprint. Yet somehow, people care more that Verizon sent out a few hundred Treo 700p units less than four days before they'll be in just about every Sprint Store.

Nobody cares that Verizon got some Treo 700p units out before Sprint by less than 100 hours. In 100 hours it won't matter and doesn't touch sales one bit. It makes for a good headline, but, is totally meaningless.

It has been beaten to death that Sprint is working on the most compelling smart device lineup, with the most compelling content lineup, ever. Yet the mindset persists that what is here, right now, is bad. It's not. The PPC-6700, Treo 700p, and Samsung i830 cover almost every base of the Smart Device market. The Motorola Q has been delayed to the point that devices that Sprint will launch make it look quite simply bad.

Mindset goes a long way in this sector, so people, please. Appreciate the excellent Sprint lineup that is here, right now, and appreciate that they're working harder than anyone else to make it even better.
