Sprint WiMAX (4G) phone coming this summer (HTC Supersonic?)
We’ve been hearing about Sprint’s 2010 WiMAX phones since October last year, and it looks like the third largest US carrier might launch its first WiMAX handset in June the latest.
According to Forbes, Sprint confirmed that a WiMAX phone will be available in the first half of the year, but it didn’t unveil further details (like the device’s price or manufacturer).
Most probably, the handset is the HTC Supersonic A9292 (pictured below), which should feature Android 2.1, 4.3 inch WVGA touchscreen display, 5MP camera and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
At the moment, Sprint offers WiMAX services in 27 US markets. By the end of 2010, the carrier plans to expand the 4G network (with the help of Clearwire, of course) in markets like New York, Boston, Washington and San Francisco, to cover up to 120 million people.
