Sprint and Google… Together at Last

sprintgoogle.jpgIt is official: Sprint Nextel and Google will be working together on a Web portal that includes search and social networking for Sprint’s WiMax Internet customers. Last week we reported that Sprint and Clearwire are working to rollout a nationwide WiMax network, and now it looks like Google wants to get in on the ‘max.

“Google and Sprint will optimize the Internet experience for the digital lifestyle,” Barry West, president of Sprint’s 4G Mobile Broadband, said in a statement.

While no official date has been announced for the launch of the nationwide WiMax network, Sprint has said it plans to have it up and running in several test markets by the end of this year, and should cover 100 million people by the end of 2008.
