Sprint today confirmed that its WiMax plans are proceeding as scheduled. Sprint employees are currently testing networks in Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington, however they have extended their test radius to suburban areas. In a few months, Sprint will allow vendors and selected "friendly" users to test devices on the network. Sprint expects to commercially launch to the network in those three cities mid-second quarter - late April or May. At launch Sprint will offer card-based modems and laptops with WiMax built in, but other manufacturers like Nokia will offer XOHM capable devices separately. Sprint will then roll out service in additional cities much slower than past network upgrades.

what exactly do we mean by other devices?????

Do they just mean something like another internet tablet or are we gonna see phones and nokia is going to make a glorious return to sprint!!!!!! 😳 😳 😳

Q. Byrd
This is good news that they are moving forward with this and that they've expanded the beta rollout footprint. I believe there are some combination WiMax/CDMA phones in the works.

QChat and WiMax are the future for Sprint.
I cannot say who will make them but we will see a wide array of devices from pc-tables to pc-cards and to regular phone devices. offthegrid is correct with mentioning that there will be dual CDMA/Wimax devices coming soon.
