Sprint Gets Serious about Web Access

For instance, if you habitually visit sports sites, your home page will start to feature the top sports stories.

The ailing cellco also made Google the default provider for open Internet search on the phones that support Sprint Web, and provides direct access to Google search on the Sprint Web home page.

Spring Web launches with support for more than 40 handset models, including the Motorola RAZR2, Palm Centro, LG Rumor, Samsung Upstage and Sanyo Katana DLX. Sprint plans to make it available on most of its Web-enabled phones over the coming weeks.
