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.

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.
