Sprint’s WiMAX Handset (Supersonic) to Launch by Summer

Sprint plans to have their first 4G WiMAX-capable handset on the market before the summer gets started.  According to Forbes, the carrier told them that the device will arrive a few months earlier than expected.  So which handset will this be?  It’s widely rumored to be the HTC Supersonic, which also boasts a 4.3-inch touch screen, Android 2.1, and the latest version of Sense UI.

As of now, Sprint’s WiMax network covers over 30 million people in 27 U.S. markets but the plan is to expand into new markets of the next few weeks.  The goal for the end of the year is to blanket around 120 million people.  Wonder if they’ll be using Walmart to help build out the network?

Thanks Jackson!

    I hope it won’t be a mere rumour about the HTC Supersonic, which also boasts a 4.3-inch touch screen, Android 2.1, and the latest version of Sense UI. It is so cool reading the encouraging words about the same.
