Palm to make a WiMax smartphone for Sprint?
With Sprint getting ready to launch 4G / WiMax in many new US markets this year, some phone manufacturers are surely thinking about making WiMax hardware for the carrier.
Apart from HTC (which should launch the Supersonic Android phone), Palm may also introduce a WiMax handset via Sprint.
At the moment, sales of the WebOS-based Palm Pre and Palm Pixi (pictured below) are “below expectations”, despite the fact that Palm launched the Plus versions of the two smartphones via Verizon Wireless.
A smartphone that combines WebOS and 4G / WiMax could be successful and bring Palm some profit, even though the device would be made only for Sprint’s customers.
