Sprint confirmed with PhoneScoop today that the early termination fee for Android phones and tablets will soon rise from $200 to $350. According to an official statement emailed to the mobile tech blog, the new pro-rated policy will take effect on September 9th and will apply to ‘advanced devices’ which includes smart phones, tablets, notebooks, and netbooks. The actual ETF will depend on how much time you have left on your contract should you wish to cancel early. This news means that everyone who buys an Epic 4G Touch is subject to the new rules as the Galaxy S II series phone lands one week after the new policy.
Could Google introduce new phones to its Pixel device lineup at its annual Google I/O developer conference? All signs suggest this to be the case.
