Sprint now selling 4G WiMAX to wholesale customers

Sprint announced on Tuesday that it is now selling access to its 4G WiMAX network, currently available in 71 markets across the United States, to its wholesale customers. Typically the carrier only sells its 3G network to wholesaler customers and it is now the first U.S. carrier to sell 4G wholesale. Sprint said that it will offer its customers the Sierra Wireless 250U 3G/4G data card as well as the HTC Detail 4G handset and the EVO Shift 4G. Mitel is among the first of Sprint’s wholesale customers to deploy a 4G network. Read on for the full press release from Sprint. More →

HTC EVO 4G Shift specs confirmed by Walmart

It’s been called the HTC Knight, the HTC Speedy, the HTC EVO Shift 4G, the HTC EVO 4G Shift and now Walmart is calling it simply the HTC EVO Shift. Call it whatever you want… the bottom line is Sprint’s version of the sexy HTC Desire Z is getting ready for lift off. We first scooped the device back in October, and the picture has been getting clearer ever since. Now, thanks to some overexcited Walmart Web workers, the puzzle is nearly complete. Specs highlights confirmed by Walmart are as follows:

  • 3.7-inch 800 x 480-pixel touchscreen display
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 2.2 OS
  • 8-megapixel camera, dual-LED flash, digital zoon, video capture support
  • Sprint 4G¬†compatibility
  • MicroSDHC support (up to 32 GB)
  • Up to 312 minutes of talk time, up to 146 hours of standby per charge
  • 4.63 x 2.3 x .47 in
  • 4.6 oz

While the official announcement isn’t expected until Thursday as Sprint struggles to combat with the inevitable onslaught of 4G announcements from Verizon Wireless at CES, the HTC EVO 4G Shift is expected to go on sale this Sunday, January 9th.
