Three of the four major nationwide wireless carriers in the U.S. confirmed earlier this week that they have plans to launch phones running Research In Motion’s (RIMM) new BlackBerry 10 platform following its debut later this month. Sprint (S), the fourth major U.S. carrier, did not initially confirm that it will support BlackBerry 10 phones. While the carrier is keeping its plans quiet for the most part, company spokesman Mark Elliot confirmed to BGR that Sprint will launch at least one device powered by RIM’s new operating system in 2013. “Sprint plans to bring BlackBerry 10 to our customers later this year,” Elliot told BGR via email. ”We will share more details soon.” RIM will unveil the finished version of its BlackBerry 10 OS along with at least one new smartphone during a press conference on January 30th.
