Sprint and Google to collaborate on WiMAX mobile Internet services
Posted on 27-Jul-2007 12:06 | Tags Filed under: News



Sprint is working with Google to bring WiMAX mobile Internet customers search, interactive communications and social networking tools though a new mobile portal.

Sprint is developing a new advanced wireless broadband network across the U.S., that is being designed to deliver new mobile multimedia applications to customers.

The agreement with Google is a milestone in Sprint's mobile Internet strategy, and it builds upon current WiMAX ecosystem infrastructure and device agreements to establish an Internet destination for user-generated content and multimedia offerings.

Sprint network bandwidth, location detection and presence capabilities will be matched with Google's popular communications suite - Google Apps - that combines the Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Talk services. The companies says customers will be able to experience a new form of interactive communications, high speed Internet browsing, local and location-centric services, and multimedia services including music, video, TV and on-demand products.

Sprint will provide open standard APIs (application programming interfaces) to Sprint's go-to-market partners and the Internet developer community to create customized products for browsable devices, facilitating the delivery of personalized and interactive services to consumer, business, public safety and government customers.

These services will be available in a variety of WiMAX embedded devices, including connection cards, stand-alone modems, laptop computers and consumer electronic devices such as personal media players, mobile Internet devices, gaming devices and phones. Eventually, the WiMAX service will be available in vehicles for navigation information, news and entertainment.

The company plans WiMAX test service in the Chicago, Baltimore and Washington DC areas by year-end 2007. Commercial service is expected to be available in a number of markets starting April 2008 and cover 100 million people by year-end 2008 in conjunction with a planned partnership with Clearwire.
