Sprint roadmap shows 4G locations and Android phones

Looks like the party kicks off on July 11th at Sprint. A leaked roadmap shows us two new Android handsets. The Motorola i1, which we already reported it’s heading to Boost Mobile too and the Samsung Intercept M910, previously been called the Moment 2. The Samsung Intercept is an Android 2.1 handset, full QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Also in the shot is the release of more 4G cities. Why Visalia  and Merced, California were chosen to be among the first few cities for the Golden State, I have no clue whatsoever, as I seriously believe that not many EVO 4Gs were sold in either city. But the good news is that there are new cities released and from what we could gather of the screenshot, here is the list below:

  • Merced, California
  • Rochester, New York
  • Eugene, Oregon
  • Syracuse, New York
  • Tri-cities ares of Washington (Kennewick, Richland and Pasco)
  • Visalia, California
  • Yakima, Washington
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
