Sprint launches new default mobile portal

Ford Flex wagon: Not nearly good enough gas mileage to justify its awkward appearance

This morning, Sprint pushed a new default mobile portal called Sprint Web to around 40 of their handset models, with plans to bring it to all models within the next few weeks.

Built on technology developed by ChangingWorlds, Sprint Web takes a stab at what it thinks the viewer finds most important based off of past usage patterns, and places it at the top of the page. (Anyone wanna take bets on how long it’ll be before someone screams “ZOMG PRIVACY VIOLATION!!!”?)

They also added a Google-powered search box to the top of the page, right where it should be. Does anybody really use portals for anything besides search anyways?

Sprint customers should start seeing the change today, no action required.
