Sprint Cancels WiMAX BlackBerry PlayBook

Sprint Cancels WiMAX BlackBerry PlayBook

In a move that's likely going to have users on both sides of the brands setting down their cups of beer and adding a little vodka, Research in Motion's BlackBerry Playbook has been dropped from Sprint's plans to carry the device with WiMAX. The PlayBook now has not secured deals for carrying by and of the largest three mobile carriers in the United States, including AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

HTC gives Sensation a WiMAX makeover for HTC EVO 4G+

HTC has outed its latest 4G smartphone, and though the dual-core HTC EVO 4G+ WiMAX handset is initially intended for South Korea's WiBro networks, we'd be very surprised if it didn't make it over to North American shores. Packing both WiMAX and HSPA connectivity, the EVO 4G+ basically takes the guts of the HTC Sensation - including the 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 4.3-inch qHD resolution display - and gives it a squared off chassis.
