Sprint Dropping CDMA/WiMAX Modem Next Week

Check your Sunday newspapers this coming weekend.  There might be an ad somewhere in there for the new Sprint dual-mode CDMA/WiMAX modem.  Set to launch for $150, this will be the first device that works on both the high-speed WiMAX network that Clearwire is building out, as well as Sprint’s existing mobile network.

The dual-mode modem arrives December 21 for $149.99 after a $50 rebate for customers as long as they commit to a two-year contract. So far, the only city to offer the WiMAX service is Baltimore, but Portland is next up with a January launch.

It won’t be long before we see Asus and Toshiba devices running Android on this network! Who knows, by the time Sprint releases their Android handset, it might have a dual capability too.
