  Where Did All The Nokia(s) Go?
Posted on Thursday, October 06 @ 04:12:08 MDT by Christopher_Price
  Sprint PCS On a related note to the impending launch of the VI-3155i, we get a lot of emails asking why there are not any high-end Nokia phones on Sprint. This is because Nokia does not yet have their own EV-DO chipset, and Nokia does not use Qualcomm chipsets (instead cutting costs by licensing the technology from Qualcomm then developing their own chipset).

Sprint is aiming away from the MM-class and thus the feature set of a high-end phone such as the 6565i would not fit well in a lineup about to be saturated by EV-DO phones. We're not saying it's impossible and won't happen, that's just the reason why Nokia is tending to stick to the low-to-mid range in the Sprint lineup currently.

Forgot to post this last night but I heard it directly from the horses mouth aka Nokia. "Our current lineup of phones do not fit in Sprint-Nextel's vision for phones. " Hence the dropping of the 6255i was their sigh. Apparently they are not to concearned with not having EVDO chipsets. They are steadily peddling new phones to Cingular and T-mobile


We aren't Sprint (the company). We don't want to be Sprint (the company). Please don't think this site is Sprint (the company). Sprint (the company) is here. Want Sprint (the company)? Go to Sprint's (company) web site...
