When we heard through the grapevine that Windows Phone 8 would be getting some love from the United States’ third largest wireless carrier today, we were gitty to say the least.

Through a press release this afternoon, Sprint announced that they’d be adding new Windows Phones from both Samsung and HTC while trumpeting their longstanding “strong relationship with Microsoft”. If you’re reading this and you’re thinking we’ve just told you a whole lot of nothing, you’ve caught us. Sprint’s press release makes no mention the name or anything from the feature sheet for either of these new devices except to say that both devise will include 3G and 4GLTE Radios, and include dual cameras for video chat, expandable memory, and dual-core processors.

Sprint has a somewhat checkered past with Windows Phone, partially because they’ve only offered the HTC Arrive a full six months after it was originally slated, and partially because of them choosing to only launch the HTC Arrive . This new round of devices should launch “before summer”.
