Reuters today reports that Sprint, the third largest mobile carrier in the United States, has been sued by the state of New York for failing to collect more than $100 million in taxes from it’s customers over a period of seven years.
Sprint has longest been proud to say that they had the most affordable and impressive monthly plans in the industry. To this day, Sprint is the only major carrier offering true unlimited data for an inexpensive price.
Nokia may be going up to the batter’s box swinging with their latest series of Lumia phones, and while the Lumia 900 may be seeing high sales numbers (with an estimated 2 million units sold), Nokia apparently has yet to convince European carriers that Nokia’s new Windows Phones are going to be a hit.
Reuters today reports that, after inquiring with four major European carriers who are carrying the various Lumia devices, all four carriers believed that the phoens are “not good enough” to compete with Apple’s iPhone or Samsung’s various Galaxy phones, going so far as to say that the innovative phones are “overpriced” and that nobody goes into shops specifically asking to see Windows Phone devices.
One mobile executive went on to say that “If the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows” the phone would be “much easier to sell.” As of yet, no Windows Phone manufacturer has seen the sort of success with devices on the Windows Phone platform as they have with Android devices. Windows Phone 7 is considered the third most widely used mobile platform, trailing Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS.
