Sprint and Intel to work on WiMAX
Sprint (and eventually Nextel) and Intel are to work together on implementing the IEEE 802.16e WiMAX standard. See Sprint and Intel to Explore WiMAX Broadband Technologies. This has been expected for some time since Sprint Nextel own the unused 2.5 GHz band. This should offer a more effective development than current 3G offerings (see WiMAX and 3G technology comparison).
