A WiMax-enabled Android phone has been "coming to Sprint" for a while now. We've seen precious little info about that device over the last few months, but PhoneArena may have just ended our relative drought. They've received some info from a tipster that an HTC WiMax-enabled phone named A9292 will hit in 2010. Nothing more is known about this mobile, but at least we've got a model number and manufacturer to attach to our vague rumors. That's...something?

PhoneArena also reports that the LG LN510 will be hitting soon. This is a touchscreen, QWERTY messaging phone with no EVDO support that will be aimed at a low price point. The LS680, a fancier Android smartphone, will also be hitting around the same time. The Samsung M350, M570, and M910 should also launch on Sprint's network this year. The M910 is believed to be the Moment 2.
Other Sprint surprises for 2010 include the Palm C40 (which is either a new Palm handset or an update to an old one) and the BlackBerry Tour 2 9650. The 9650 is rumored to be a WiFi/BlackBerry 5.0 phone. I've got a feeling the C40 could be a new Palm product launch waiting until after the new iPhone's release to be announced. The underwhelming Palm Pre/Pixi Pro announcement at CES could have just been a stop-gap until then. One can hope...
