Sprint Launching Over The Air Updates

It’s been nearly a year since we first predicted that over the air updates were going to become important for carriers and handset makers. Over that time, the space has become increasingly crowded. However, Sprint is now claiming that they’ll be the first carrier in the US to offer over-the-air updates to phones on their network. Of course, I think some may quibble with Sprint’s claim of being first. I know my first generation Danger device receives over-the-air updates and has for quite some time.
