Sprint's new WiMax phone: Who ya Gonna Call- Ghostbusters?

The WSJ reports that Sprint will be announcing its first WiMAX phone this week at the CTIA Wireless Conference in Las Vegas. The Journal article states:

Wimax is DOOM, real LTE test with Teliasonera's speed test

Hello all,

Frecuency they are using is 2.6ghz and 10mhz BW. Also look how big the USB dongle is…
