Is the HTC Supersonic the Subject of Sprint’s “Groundbreaking” Announcement?

Rumors have been swirling that Sprint would be announcing the WiMax-powered HTC Supersonic at CTIA this week, and it looks like another sign is pointing in that direction. Sprint Premier customers report receiving an alert that the carrier will make “an exciting announcement about a groundbreaking new device” on Tuesday.

The curious folks on Sprint’s community forum posted screengrabs of chats with Sprint customer service reps that don’t quite confirm that the announcement will in fact be about the Supersonic. One way or the other, we’ll know for sure very soon.

    A web chat transcript found on the Sprint Community seems to corroborate, but we can't at this point verify the validity of the screen capture. You can view the entirety of the purported web chat after the break.

    On going through your article I do agree with that like the curious folks on Sprint’s community forum who posted screengrabs of chats with Sprint customer service reps, I also don’t quite confirm that the announcement will in fact be about the Supersonic. One way or the other, we’ll know for sure very soon. Thanks for the information.

    HTC’s Supersonic, the long-rumored WiMAX smartphone with a 4.3-inch screen and Android 2.1 with Sense UI.

    The Supersonic is the start of a new breed of phones. It’s a true superphone which will make even a NexusOne or Incredible seem ordinary! Be prepared for surprises, such as mini-hmdi out rather than just ext-microusb, 8mp camera on the rear with 720p video recording, as well as a front facing camera for skyping with help of the kickstand.

    SUPERSONIC SUPERPHONE!!!

    I have a HTC and will never go back, they make such quality products. A friend of mine has the Supersonic and it is amazing! I suggest buying some sort of damage insurance or case cover for it though…any smart phone for that matter, they are a expensive to replace/fix!
