Sprint LTE rollout tipped for early 2012

Sprint took a big risk when it chose existing WiMax tech for its 4G networks. The hope was that the WiMax networks would already be widely available before the roll out of LTE started giving Sprint a leg up in the 4G race.

We have Samsung's Vice President of Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim to thank for the full rundown of the Samsung Galaxy S II's full new features rundown, all of it presented by him on his very own Galaxy S II device through its MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) port made capable of sending out a mirrored-display through a normal, everyday HDMI cable.

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.
