T-Mobile merger with Sprint looks more likely as Softbank and Deutsche Telekom agree on sale

Softbank is making an end-run around concerns about a merger of Sprint and T-Mobile US by instead hitting up T-Mobile's parent company Deutsche Telekom. As reported by Japanese news agency Kyodo, Japan-based Softbank has entered into an agreement with Germany-based Deutsche Telekom to buy the latter's ownership stake in US carrier T-Mobile. The US Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice have expressed their concerns about the potential for such consolidation in the US cellular market, and the move by Softbank would likely end up still being heavily scrutinized.

Sprint

Sprint has released its financial report for Q1 2014, which boasts a record operating income of $420 million, the company's best in over seven years. That's where the good news comes to an end as the company's report also highlights a loss of $151 million in the quarter alone, but compared to Q1 2013 this is at least a substantial improvement. The carrier is still experiencing issues with 4G LTE upgrades, more affordable plans launched and customers switching providers.

The difference being new customers are getting the $100 pricing. If you're looking to place an order for one, you sadly only get one color to choose from and that's the black version. According to the site, shipments will begin arriving at people's doorsteps 2-5 business days after the order has been placed. Anyone already placed their order?

After a long, long wait, Sprint will finally be releasing the BlackBerry Q10 on August 30th. While all other US carriers have had the Q10 for months now, Sprint will be offering it up in stores and online this Friday. 

Sprint had passed on the BlackBerry Z10 all together so the Q10 will be the first BlackBerry 10 in their arsenal, though they are said to be offering up the Z30 later this fall. The Q10 will be available for $199 and users can pair the new device with unlimited service on the My Way or My All-in plans.

What say you Sprint users - will you be upgrading to a new Q10?

Aug 09, 2013 Sprint BlackBerry Q10 landing page invites pre-registration

Sprint BlackBerry Q10

After catching a less-than-official glimpse of the Sprint-branded BlackBerry Q10, we've caught wind of a proper pre-registration page. It doesn't mention device pricing, though Sprint's touting their unlimited $80 and $110 plans. Rumor has it that we'll see this thing on store shelves on August 30, and with a proper landing page available, that date is seeming more likely. 

It's taken eons for Sprint to offer a BlackBerry 10 device, and it's hard to say why, exactly. They passed on the Z10, though other U.S. carriers happily snatched up both. Sprint customers, have you been itching to upgrade? Has avaiability of the Z10 and Q10 elsewhere tempted you to switch? 

Those interested in getting updates about Sprint's Q10 availability can hit up their landing page, which also includes a tour of the big device features.

May 09, 2013 Sprint gearing up to show off the BlackBerry Q10 at BlackBerry Live

Sprint was scoffed at by many on the news that they would be skipping the BlackBerry Z10 completely in favor of the new BlackBerry Q10. However with the Q10 set to land on US soil in just a few weeks (hopefully) Sprint has announced that they will be on hand at BlackBerry Live in Orlando next week to show off the new device. 

While they haven't made an official announcement as to the actual release of the Q10, they did post some news for next week.

Join Sprint at BlackBerry Live, May 14-16 in Orlando. You'll get the latest on BlackBerry 10 and can take new BlackBerry devices for a spin. Stop by the Sprint booth and discover the power of BlackBerry devices paired with Truly UnlimitedSM data.

Sprint plans to offer Blackberry 10 smartphones, including innovative features like a best-in-class browser, a rich application ecosystem and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities.

So it does look like Sprint will have a decent amount of exposure during BlackBerry Live and we can hope to hear more on their Q10 release next week. The fact that they say Sprint devices leaves us wondering if there is more to this.

Fingers crossed that Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile will chip in some good news as well.
