Sprint and Google have agreed to work together to provide a set of software services that will work on the WiMAX network that Sprint is launching later this year. In particular, Google will build a portal that includes search functions and social networking tools, as well as its Google Apps suite of productivity and communications applications, such as Google Talk. Sprint is also working with other developers to create a range of services that will work on any browser-equipped WiMAX device, including mobile phones.

But what if SK Telecom buys Sprint/Netel?

wow they are willing to buy the headaches and problems that sprint has? if this does happen can they first work on customer service? im talking about a full 180 on customer service to the point that customer wont have to deal with someone on the other...

On July 26th, Google/Sprint became self-aware...

It's only the beginning. I predict all the mobile providers will merge into one and force us all to use Nokia 5190s.

I saw the annoucenment earlier, this is exciting news. If you look at google's carrier openings in proves they are definitely interested in creating a phone or phone service.
google is the next virgin industries.....

People have been in such an uproar lately about Sprint not bidding on 700Mhz spectrum...

There ya go. Happy now? They are teaming with Google... who happens to want to spend BILLIONS on 700Mhz spectrum.

Sounds like a good move to me

If they are going to collaberate with anyone this is the wise choice. I'm starting to get somewhat excited about WiMax
🤤 yep yep! The news keeps getting better!!!! 🤤
sprint name is mud right now, wimax will not save them.
Sprint is an awesome choice for Google. Google is becoming Gigantic, the only question is, how strong is the partnership going to be, and what is it leading to? Sprint Stock seems to be almost the perfect amount for someone to buyout the $6 B company....
