Editor - The 2.5ghz Spectrum is a separate band from what's in use for WiMAX. It will also be TDD-LTE, not WiMAX.

Either way, can't wait to snag one of these up. Now we just need to get Clearwire/ Sprint to finish up the TDD-LTE sites in Las Vegas.

According to www.s4gru.com , Clearwire has over 2000 LTE sites ready to be connected to the Sprint Network. Sprint is moving fairly quickly with it's 1900 LTE deployment, hopefully now that Softbank is in control they will expedite deployment of Clearwire's assets because it looks like they have been working on their LTE network.

Tri-Band LTE devices won't matter if there is no LTE to run on...
