An Engadget tipster has sent in a few images indicating that The Radio Shack may be installing WiMAX repeaters in its stores prior to the HTC EVO 4G launch. We have to agree with the move, as actually getting to experience how fast 4G is will, in all likelihood, boost sales (and maybe even make customers less violent more accepting of the extra $10/month 4G surcharge). No word on how many of The Shack’s 6,500 stores will be getting these ClearWire units or what their broadcast range is.
