WiMax Operators Talk Global Roaming

A group of 16 WiMax network operators from around the world gathered in Taipei this week at the WiMAX Forum Global Operator Summit to discuss international WiMax roaming. Companies in attendance included Sprint, Intel, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Clearwire and a number of others. The goal of the summit was to start a dialog that will eventually lead to the ability of WiMax users to roam onto WiMax networks in other countries. Sprint has already inked several such deals with Jamaica's Digicel and Taiwan's Global Mobile. The companies in attendance haven't revealed when a system might actually be put to widespread use.

Qualcomm this week launched the "Snapdragon 865 and 765 Modular Platforms", which are pre-engineered and pre-certified circuit boards that include most of the critical components for a high-end 5G phone (or equivalent cellular device.) As phones have become more sophisticated and refined, the costs of developing a competitive high-end phone have become prohibitive for all but the largest companies. This new program from Qualcomm aims to level that playing field for smaller companies.

T-Mobile has officially completed its merger with Sprint. For the moment, the merger has little effect on customers, but "Sprint" lives only as a brand of T-Mobile, not a separate company.

Google is adding a new feature to some Android phones that can speak to an emergency operator on your behalf when you call 911. During an emergency call, three new buttons — "Medical", "Fire", and "Police" — will be available in case you're unable to speak.
Sounds like a Global Standard to me
Sprint already has roaming agreements with other countries. Glad to see more Wimax partners stepping up to the plate. 😎
So a couple of people (ok, 16 of them) had a meeting far far away and came up...
