Sprint this morning announced its second-quarter earnings, and more than a few investors likely had to be picked up off the floor after learning that the carrier had a net gain in subscribers for the first time in three years.
We'll let that soak in for a second. Sprint gained more subscribers than it lost. For the first quarter in three years. (That's, like, a lot of quarters.) There were a total of 111,000 subscribers gained in Q2, which also happens to be when the Evo 4G, Sprint's largest (and currently best) Android smartphone was released.
Money-wise, Sprint saw $8 billion in revenue but a net loss of $760 million, which it attributes to some long-winded financial thingy you can read all about if you want. [Sprint]
