Sprint set to discontinue the HTC Evo 4G, Evo View 4G, and BlackBerry PlayBook this month
Sprint is set to discontinue a few of the devices it currently sells before this month ends. These things do happen from time to time, as smartphones and tablets reach End-of-Life (EOL), which is what carriers usually call the fact that they stop selling one gadget or the other.
Now SprintFeed has received Sprint’s latest EOL list, and it includes some big names from yesteryear. Alongside the less-known Samsung M360 and Samsung Trender Purple, the famous HTC Evo 4G will be discontinued sometime this week.
Next week it will be the turn of the HTC Evo View 4G, and the Wi-Fi-only BlackBerry PlayBook will join these devices into oblivion before the end of January. In early February, the Sanyo Innuendo Blue will have to go too.
That’s just the way the mobile world works, so don’t be quick to shed a tear for any of the aforementioned gadgets. They’ve had their moment in the spotlight (well, some more than others) and are now getting old and need to be replaced in the carrier’s lineup with younger, better performing offerings.
