We've seen a number of launch date leaks for Sprint courtesy of partner Brightpoint in the past; generally, they tend to be pretty accurate, so we're going to go ahead and put some weight to this latest one. Looks like we can expect Nextel to pick up the Motorola i9
on Wednesday -- Boost got it
a little over a month ago, you might recall -- along with the ancient i580
in yellow. Brightpoint also reels in the Palm Treo Pro a few days earlier than Sprint's official date
, while the LG Rumor 2
launches a few days later on the 15th or the 29th; Brightpoint's wording is a little odd here, so it's hard to tell exactly how it'll shake out. Finally, we have a camera-free version of the BlackBerry 8350i
in the works, a logical product for RIM to be taking on considering the phone's all-business roots.
