Is WiMAX Dead?

WiMAX had a 2 year head start over LTE, but it is looking like WiMAX is the Rick Santorum of the 4G world.  WiMAX had the initial lead.  Sprint and Clear could have been in the lead.  Today, LTE is the 4G technology that is winning.  In fact, Clear and Sprint have already announced that they are dropping WiMAX and moving towards LTE technology.  So, you may see some cool new services (NetZero) and others, but they are based 4G technology that is at a dead end, so don't get stuck in the WiMAX corner!
