Sprint, Motorola partner for wireless broadband

Sprint today signed a deal with Motorola to conduct joint broadband wireless trials in 2005 and 2006 using WiMax technology. The two companies will work together to develop next-generation broadband wireless networks and wireless interactive multimedia services. While the two companies have not committed to any commercial broadband wireless deals, the partnerships seems to imply that if the trials go well there will be further development. Sprint recently signed a similar agreement with Intel. The carrier is working to build an ecosystem of chipsets, devices, equipment, and infrastructure for future broadband wireless services. Sprint joined the WiMax Forum in January as a principal member.
