I fear sprint/verizon wont pick up this device, and as a result we will be forced to have the GSM HTC edition, which is AT&T and T-Mobile Only

If sprint were to carry this device, it would be ~$500, with a 2 year contract, after any MIRs. I'd never buy it for that price, even if sprint carried it.

Re: leo launching on-o2-uk-october-12th/

It doesn't take a crystal ball.
Unlocked TP2: ~$650
Sprint TP2 retail: $600
Price after rebates: $350

Leo unlocked: ~$800
Sprint retail price: ~$700
Sprint Instant discount: -$150
Sprint MIR: -$100
Sprint price after rebates: ~$450-500

I wish it was sub-$300, but if they didn't grant much of a subsidy to the TP2, I seriously doubt they will put a large subsidy on this phone...

Re: leo launching on-o2-uk-october-12th/

I have waited patiently for 4 years for a phone like this to come to sprint ever since I stopped using my pocket pc. So if they did pick the Leo up and it was $450 I would buy it. I would rather have a phone with a HUGE display then carry around a netbook to look at reports or surf the web. But that is why there are so many phones out there. Not everyone likes the same thing. I also am not holding my breath that the Leo comes over to the US other then unlocked version for at&t or T-Mobile.

Re: leo launching on-o2-uk-october-12th/

well, we gotta start calling and hounding sprint.. asking when and if they'll get it.
the more interest shown, the better of a chance to get it on sprint.

i think we should flood the gates calling and asking/talking about it.
