Sprint gets Real for wireless

Sprint on Monday enhanced its effort to push wireless services to its PCS customers, signing a content delivery deal with multimedia software maker RealNetworks.

The RealNetworks agreement is the latest in a string of partnerships that Sprint has formed to encourage wireless users to upgrade to more powerful handsets and tap into its growing array of high-end services. In recent months, Sprint has made similar deals around various forms of content with device maker Samsung and Internet service provider EarthLink. [News.com]
