Between comments last week at CTIA and the 3GPP approval request to use their spectrum for TD-LTE, it is now only a matter of time before all of the mobile WiMax players hop on board the LTE train. Economies of scale are just too big to ignore.
So although there will still be fragmentation at the OS layer, we are finally, finally moving toward a common RAN platform. No more religious wars in wireless – could it be possible?
As pretty as that new EVO WiMax phone is, I wouldn’t buy one unless you plan to chuck it out in a year or so . . .
