Sanyo To Offer Dual Mode WiMax Handsets
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.
So let's see...
IDEN for walkie talkie service.
WiMax for 4g data.
I smell trouble a'brewin'.
Sprint is Number 1
this is the best news ever!!!
