Sprint Stores to Offer Mobile ESPN


Mobile ESPN products and services are currently available in 575 Sprint Nextel Corp. retail locations, the two companies said Thursday.

The original agreement between the sports network and the communications-services provider called for the EVDO (Evolution Data Optimized) product to be available in at least 500 stores by July.

“Bringing our products to Sprint stores affords us a unique opportunity to reach wireless consumers looking for a differentiated sports-data experience on a high-quality device and a proven high-speed network,” Mobile ESPN senior vice president and general manager Manish Jha said in a prepared statement.

Sprint Nextel VP of retail Jeff Auman added, “The addition of the Mobile ESPN brand is a strong complement to Sprint's expanding lineup of voice and data services. Sprint stores now offer sports fanatics the fix they need to make their wireless experience complete.”
