Sprint Nextel plans FMC play in second half

Sprint Nextel plans to play in the fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) game in the second half of this year. In conjunction with its cable partners, Sprint Nextel will launch CDMA/WiFi handsets that will allow subscribers to use their broadband connection and a WiFi access point. Next year Sprint intends to extend the capabilities to integrate home media into the handsets. Still no word on what technology it plans to launch on its 2.5 GHz spectrum.
