Sprint has released its Titan platform to develop mobile applications on Sprint phones. What’s Titan in a nutshell, well lets look at this picture from the Titan overview slides:

What’s that we see in red? Oh my, it’s eRCP, what’s that doing there! People always called me crazy when I told them Eclipse would find its way into your cell phone or PDA, but look, another phone!

That’s an ‘Eclipse Installed’ sticker on my Blackberry. I tend to take the approach if I keep saying something, it will eventually just be true (I heard that works well in politics).

I think you should hurry up because the rumor on the street is that Fake Steve Jobs will announce Eclipse on the iPhone at EclipseCon 🙂
