Speaking to investors yesterday, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse made comments on the company's WiMax business. He noted that the trials in Chicago and Baltimore-Washington, D.C., are going well and that Sprint will roll out dual-mode CDMA/WiMax handsets later this year. Until now, Sprint had only confirmed that "consumer electronics devices" would have WiMax on board. Hesse went on to say that he doesn't think Sprint can pass up the opportunity to be the first carrier to deploy a 4G broadband network. Sprint is still in discussions with Clearwire to see if a partnership is the best option moving forward.

Lets look at FACTS
What about Verizon?
I can understand ATT not getting WiMix because they are GSM. You would think Verizon would want it too if it is 4g.

The first two are more recent, about LTE. The third is a couple months old about wiMax being designated a 3g standard for some reason.
