Manager Who Oversaw Evo 4G, Epic 4G Leaves Sprint

The midwife who pulled the Evo 4G and the Epic 4G through the mobile birth canal, Kevin Packingham, is leaving Sprint effective Monday. He is starting a new, unnamed company.

Obviously this is a pretty big deal at Sprint. With the rise of the 4G phones they’ve offered the world a real competitor to the Verizon Droid family. However, if Sprint can’t maintain its steady growth in handset popularity, they’re going to have a tough 2011.
