SprintFeed, a site that sprung up 9 months ago seemingly out of nowhere, has been a solid source of Sprint leaks and rumors ever since. Outside of S4GRU, it was pretty much the only site dedicated to America's 3rd largest mobile carrier, but as of today it's closing its doors.

The founder, Mark Hearn, was offered a position of a full-time editor at TechnoBuffalo, a more general tech news site, which he accepted. Since he can't run SprintFeed and fulfill his editorial duties at the same time, something had to give, and that something ended up being SprintFeed itself. Bummer.

It's unclear whether Mark's Sprint sources will follow him to TechnoBuffalo or not, but in the meantime we wish Mark all the best at his new home!

Farewell, SprintFeed, it was great knowing you.

      These are just SprintFeed mentions on AP: http://www.androidpolice.com/?s=sprintfeed. Other sites quoted their exclusive stories often as well (including Engadget, TheVerge, etc).

        Thanks Artem. I guess I never paid attention to where the feed came from.

        Now I'm saddened to see it come to an end.

    Crap and I just discovered them a few weeks ago. Sad to see them go.

    It was a cool website, would explain the small lack of updates, nevertheless sad to see it go. However good luck to Mark!

    I've had SprintFeed in my Android bookmark folder that I opened many times per day...sad to see them go. I guess TechnoBuffalo will replace SprintFeed's spot.
