Looks like Sprint is buckling up to spread the joy of mobile WiMax in Q1 2008. First it’s going to be a customer trial, then they gear up for a full commercial launch in Q2. They are already planning a soft launch within a week for employees in Chicago, Baltimore, and Washington D.C, then from there they’d obviously expand the coverage. Sprint promised to run trials on the network by the end of this year, and by running this soft launch they’re able to uphold the self-imposed deadline. The Xohm, as the Sprint project is called, has been highly anticipated in the industry because of its speed and network reach. We’re suckers for widespread connectivity, so get a move on it Sprint, we’re excited to see how this develops, and we’ve already put some popcorn in the microwave.
