RadioShack stores getting a WiMAX upgrade in preparation for the HTC EVO 4G?
There were speculations in the past that WiMAX towers would be erected at Walmart retail locations across the nation, but now we're hearing word about another major retailer that is actually going through with a similar plan. RadioShack will no doubt be one of the indirect partners of Sprint that will offer the HTC EVO 4G at launch – and they're currently offering customers pre-orders for the handset right now. You may find some RadioShack locations somewhat crowded not solely due to the fact that customers can purchase the soon-to-be hot Android phone, but for their readily available WiMAX connection as well. According to Engadget's tipster, some of RadioShack's stores nationwide are being outfitted with Clearwire WiMAX repeaters just in time for the June 4th launch of the HTC EVO 4G – which obviously will offer customers who aren't covered in WiMAX goodness a small taste of the next generation high speed connection. It's not known if this will become a permanent stay for these stores, but it sure is nice to know that you can take advantage of the extra $10 per month charge you'll be paying for.
