Sprint to announce Supersonic: 1st WiMax phone

sprint20logo201The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sprint will announce HTC’s Supersonic as the world’s first WiMax phone “at an industry conference next week,” which, of course, probably indicates CTIA. The launch could mean a big turnaround for the Sprint Network reputation, though my limited experience of Sprint’s WiMax and Clearwire’s Internet service here in Portland, Oregon hasn’t inspired confidence. If anything, it inspired sheer dread. But I’m told major infrastructure enhancements have occurred since my last testing. Both Sprint and Clear have been pushing hard on the technology while others have ignored it in favor of LTE 4G. Personally, I would bet on the latter, but time will tell.
