Mar 20, 2007, 1:10 PM by (staff)
Sanyo today announced the company is working on dual mode CDMA / WiMax handsets using chips from Beceem. It is likely these new models will be for Sprint, although the company did not state this outright. Nokia, Motorola and Samsung have all committed to bringing out dual-mode devices for the carrier. It is not surprising that Sanyo, which has a strong relationship with Sprint, would want to join in with dual-mode offerings as well. Sprint will begin testing WiMax in three cities soon and expects to begin rolling out the service late this year. The comnpany has not announced what handsets or devices will be available during testing or at launch.

Sprint to Kill Off WiMax Once and for All On Nov. 6, 2015
Sprint today confirmed it will permanently shutter its WiMax network on or around November 6, 2015. The company had previously said it would operate the failed 4G network until "the end of 2015." Sprint said it has identified 6,000 "redundant sites that we expect to decommission and terminate the underlying leases," as part of the process, which will save the company some money.
