Sprint continued its 4G announcement marathon this morning with the official launch of WiMax service in Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN, also known as Twin Cities, and Pittsburgh, PA. Welcome to the fast lane!

This announcement follows the Nashville 4G launch 2 weeks ago, Orlando launch last week, and the introduction of Epic 4G in the beginning of the month. Sprint’s 4G service now covers 55 markets.

Users of the only 2 aforementioned devices capable of running on Sprint’s 4G network are charged an extra $10 "premium data" fee, no matter whether 4G is available in their area or not.

Ever wanted to know what exactly it takes to roll out a whole new cellular network? Sprint, being one of the first companies in the US to do it (well, Clearwire is doing all the leg work), today launched a new video series which will explore just what exactly it takes to provide a large metropolitan area with 4G coverage.

The first video, "Wiring up 4G in NYC: Rooftops," is out now, embedded below.

Earlier, HTC and Sprint announced that they would be rolling out an update for the EVO 4G to fix some issues. Very shortly after the announcement (not the update itself, which literally went live 30 minutes ago, but the announcement of it, mind you), a rooted version of said update was released by the insane, caffeine fueled developers at XDA. Normally, after an update such as this you would have to wait for some kind dev to root the update or take advantage of Unrevoked Forever.

If you remember, a few months ago, I found a nice, strong 4G signal around Mountain View/Santa Clara, right in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Sprint promised 4G in the Bay Area by the end of the year, so it was only logical to see them starting some testing. Today, it looks like Sprint kicked the testing up a notch and lit up San Francisco, according to reports by both IntoMobile and Engadget.

Orlando residents have 2 exciting things going on as of today - Disney World and now Sprint's 4G service. Today, the company officially announced the launch of 4G in Florida's 5th largest city, immediately available to all EVO 4G and Epic 4G users.

Sprint has been on fire lately - the announcement follows hot on the heels of last week's Nashville 4G launch and the introduction of Epic 4G in the beginning of the month.

File this one under the "it had to be done" category: a dual screen Russian Android phone. And not just any dual screen Android handset; this baby has one screen on the front and one screen on the back. That's right, no flipping open, sliding, or anything of that sort, merely turn the device over and you're facing the other screen.

Oh yeah, and it turns out that other screen is curved.

Developing apps can be both exciting and enjoyable. Integrating your apps with the latest 4G technology can be even more rewarding. As a leader in providing 4G coverage, Sprint has come together with Wired, Reddit and Ars Technica to offer some great rewards for the right app. Sprint wants you to showcase what can be achieved when you make full use of 4G.

If you want to lay claim to the rewards on offer you need to create an app for one of the following categories:

  • Video, Multimedia & Augmented Reality
  • Gaming
  • Productivity, Business & Utilities
  • Social Networking
  • Entertainment

You can either reinvent an existing killer app of yours or develop a brand new app from scratch.

tab

Well this is getting downright interesting - after some pricing confusion, rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will sell for somewhere between $200 and $400 on contract. That's a hell of a lot better than some of the numbers that were floating around after its official unveiling on September 2 - we'd heard upwards of $900.

Even better: looks like the earlier rumor about Sprint getting the Tab may hold some water after all - now, word on the street is that it'll be rocking WiMax (4G).

EVO 4G and now Epic 4G owners can celebrate the addition of 3 more metropolitan areas to Sprint's 4G family, as the company just announced that the following cities are lighting up with 4G, effective immediately:

  • Boston, MA
  • Daytona Beach, FL
  • Providence, RI

These latest additions bring Sprint’s 4G coverage grand total to over 50 urban hotspots. Still no official release of 4G we caught in the Bay Area but we're hoping for something soon, as the clock that will mark the promised end of the year timeline is ticking.
