Sprint to offer 4G modem by the end of 2008
Sprint has decided to launch its WiMAX side of things by renaming it Spring 4G from the year old name of Xohm.

The company is also expected to launch the first dual-mode WiMAX modem by the end of this year in Baltimore. With Sprint Nextel owning a 51% of the venture with Clearwire, the former will be launching WiMAX services with the later under a new MVNO agreement.

Along with this, Sprint Nextel's future 4G line up will include handsets and modems that will be able to switch between CDMA and WiMAX; a network that Clearwire is currently constructing all over the U.S.
