Corporate press releases are usually pretty boring. Corporate press releases about quarterly earnings? Well, they’re a one way ticket to snoozeville for sure, but every now and then you glean a little nugget of information that rewards you for slogging through the PR babble. In this case, Sprint’s 4G partner Clear has let slip that we can expect both HTC and Samsung to release Android powered handsets with Wi-Max on board by the end of this year.
Seeing as how this is a press release put out by Clear’s corporate office, it’s pretty hard to doubt its veracity. There aren’t many details on the offerings other than they’re both going to be equipped with 3G/4G and WiFi and that the Samsung phone will be ‘optimized for heavy video and video communications use’.
