Sprint Looking to Get Back with Clearwire on WiMax: It's Not You Baby, It's Me

After a messy breakup in November, Sprint Nextel is looking to get the Clearwire WiMax partnership back on track—and they are courting other major companies to sweeten the deal.

According to reports in the Wall Street Journal, Sprint is also talking with Intel, Google, and Best Buy to help get the WiMax project off the ground. Sprint could use the extra support given that business has taken a significant downturn as of late—and the $5 billion it would take to get WiMax running is a serious chunk of change. Only time will tell if Sprint's smooth talking will lure Clearwire back into the fold. Keep in mind that a Sprint exec has claimed that WiMax will launch in April. [InformationWeek]
