You know how you see all those commercials from Sprint where they tout themselves as having the "nation's first 4G network"? Well, how many of you have a 4G-capable phone from Sprint? No one. That will change in just a few months, though.

Sprint's claim is not false. They do have a series of wireless devices that run on the advanced mobile network, such as portable modems. Now, Sprint has given Forbes a target time for the first fully-enabled 4G handset.

The company's 4G network will reportedly cover as much as 120 million people by the end of the year. 4G download speeds are up to 10 times faster than current 3G speeds, virtually eliminating any remaining inadequacies over mobile video, high-capacity applications, or conducting business on the go.

The device, called Supersonic and manufactured by HTC, was revealed earlier this year when it showed up in online inventory systems. The phone will come equipped with Android and a powerful Snapdraggon processor, according to early reports.
