Sprint, Google team up on WiMAX

updated 09:45 am EDT, Thu July 26, 2007

Sprint and Google WiMAX

Sprint and Google today announced a pact that will provide software for the former's upcoming WiMAX network. The search engine developer will give the makers of Sprint's devices open access to many of Google's web-based apps -- including Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Talk -- to write mobile versions that take advantage of the speed provided by the future 4G network. Subscribers will be able to count on these features not just on computers with WiMAX cards but also mobile devices such as cellphones and media players that could use some or all of the features on the road, Sprint says.

While neither Google nor Sprint were willing to explain any particular implementations, Sprint continues to plan for trial runs of WiMAX in Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. in late 2007 and its first paid service by April 2008 and may include some or all of Google's promised features by the official launch.
