It looks as though Sprint is sending a couple of tablets and phones out to pasture by the end of the month, but one has to wonder what might be replacing them, if anything.
According to an EoL (End of Life) document that SprintFeed has acquired, both the HTC EVO View 4G and the BlackBerry PlayBook will see their sales coming to an end next week. There’s no word as of yet as to what may be taking their place in the Now Network’s tablet line-up, but one has to think that there must be something on the horizon.
Taking the place of the HTC EVO View 4G wouldn’t be difficult in the least as you can’t swing a robot arm without hitting some form of Android tablet these days. The more curious aspect of this story is the BlackBerry PlayBook when you consider that we’ve been hearing rumors that RIM is planning two new PlayBook tablets for this year. While Sprint removing the original from its product mix doesn’t make those rumors a lock, but it sure makes you scratch your chin and go, “hmmmm.”
On the phone side of things, the only notable EoL is the HTC EVO 4G which was originally supposed to be done back in October, but as these documents say, “dates subject to change.”
What do you think about the current line-up of devices Sprint is bringing to an end?
