The paper is reporting that Sprint's Board of Directors is debating about whether to invite rival carrier T-Mobile to become a partner in the project by investing in Clearwire. Such a move would make partners out of the nation's third and fourth largest carriers. Robert Dotson, T-Mobile's CEO, said earlier this year that he wanted to see what his options were regarding a 4G pipeline and even had discussions with Clearwire. No proposals are pending and some Sprint board members are strongly against the idea of bringing T-Mobile in as a partner.
Sprint has been the first off the blocks in the U.S. with the launch of two 4G enabled handsets, the EVO 4G made by HTC, and the Samsung produced Epic 4G. The latter device was launched Tuesday.
