WiMax Nation: Sprint (S) And Google (GOOG) Team Up

Sprint (S) says it is working with Google (GOOG). to bring WiMAX mobile Internet customers search, interactive communications and social networking tools though a new mobile portal. Tough luck for Yahoo! (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT)

Sprint network bandwidth, location detection and presence capabilities will be matched with Google’s popular communications suite – Google Apps(TM) – that combines the Gmail(TM), Google Calendar(TM) and Google Talk(TM) services.

A good win for the WiMax advocates.
