The HTC Supersonic is Sprint's answer to the Nexus One, iPhone, and Motorola Droid. They've gone too long without having a device that compares to the best phones their competitors carry. Pocketnow reports that, during an interview with Forbes, the president of Sprint's Business Markets said that his carrier's “first 4G handset will launch in the first half of 2010.”

There's little doubt about what this could mean. Although the Supersonic was not specifically mentioned, it is the only 4G Sprint phone we know for sure is on the horizon. The Supersonic packs a 4.3” screen, 1 GHz processor, and will also sport a kickstand on the back. An AMOLED screen is also a possibility.
A 1H2010 release for the Supersonic would allow Sprint to compete directly with Verizon's launch of the Nexus One and the launch of the new iPhone. While the Supersonic won't have nearly the name appeal of the iPhone, the fact that it is a high-end 4G handset could be enough to convince many customers to switch to Sprint.
