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

July 26, 2007 by Douglas A. McIntyre

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.
