Interesting...I guess that's smart. From my understanding, the reason they went with it, is because essentially it isn't limited to JUST cellphones (that's what I thought LTE was confined to).
I was under the impression that WIMAX was going to be the more "common" of the two in the future.
Way to cover your bases though, sprint
