Title says it all, folks. Sprint has officially launched Sprint Movies, the pay-per-view service that allows mobile phones to stream full length movies. The movies will cost between $3.99 and $5.99 each, per viewing. They can be watched in their entirety or divided up into chapters, similar to DVD format. There will also be the option of 24-hour viewing (aka porn). The service is available on select phones. You know, the same select phones that have 2-inch or smaller screens. Would anybody out there watch an entire movie on a cellphone display?
