Sprint just released its quarterly earnings report for Q2 of 2010, and for the first time in three years, the company reported a net increase in subscribers: 111,000 to be exact. The majority of credit to this net increase goes to the launch of the world's first 4G smartphone, the HTC Evo 4G, which was reported as the fastest selling Sprint smartphone ever. This is certainly great news for Sprint, as in the past Verizon and AT&T had been siphoning off ex-Sprinters at an alarming rate.

Furthermore, Sprint's total Q2 revenue was $8 Billion, but you may want to curb your enthusiasm a bit. Sprint managed to still have a net revenue loss of $760 million. And Sprint's CEO Hesse has lamented recently of his own doubts of the future of the WiMax network, that his company is considering a merger with T-Mobile, which may subsequently lead to a switch to LTE.
