WiMAX is Coming
We’ve been all over the unconfirmed Android news lately and inadvertently, we’ve pushed our other stuff aside.Â Longtime AndroidGuys readers will recall that we cover all the major members of the Open Handset Alliance whenever news is relevant.Â One of the bigger companies neglected lately is Sprint.Â It’s time we show their new WiMax project a little affection.
Planned for later this month, Sprint Nextel will be launching their WiMAX service in Baltimore.Â There are some great third parties aligned with the launch, namely Google.Â Others include uLocate, Eventful, Topix, Navteq, Accuweather, Openwave Systems, and Autodesk.Â With the rise of geo-based services and the shortfalls of WiFi, Wimax is poised to really do well.Â Up until now, there has been no network, only theories.Â All that should change shortly.
The other cities scheduled to have WiMAX services is Washington D.C. and Chicago.Â A recipe of an Android phone mixed with WiMAX sounds great, dont you think ?
