I think the techies will jump in and get Sprint first. Then maybe after a season of killer apps being developed for free for Sprints mobile devices, then the mass public will hop on.
I think that this is as big as iPhone. It looks as if Sprint is bringing forth a worthy competitor. They are both operating systems, but think WiMAX equals freedom, and you are in control.
As a programmer who believes in Open Source I am very interested in all of this. When my current contract with AT&T ends I'm going to inquire with Sprint. If the people and the company have agreeable policies then I'm signing up with Sprint.
What I'd like to be able to do, is program "on" my cell phone. Like anybody else who texts like a mad man, typically teenage girls, I want to program on the go. I'm looking forward to it.
