Clearwire outs Android-based WiMAX smartphones for 2010

Sprint will be the first carrier to offer a WiMAX handset with their upcoming HTC EVO 4G in June, but Clearwire is set to follow up with two more smartphones later this year. Samsung will provide an Android-based 3G/4G/WiFi device which is “optimized for heavy video and video communications use” and HTC will produce the other smartphone.

No specific models were announced, but it’s possible we could see a Clear-branded HTC EVO a Windows Phone 7 device from HTC and the Samsung Moment 2 is a conceivable candidate for the other device.

The primary owner of Clearwire is Sprint (51%), but other major players are also involved including Comcast, Time Warner, Intel, Google, and Bright House. Since all the companies are sharing the same network, we expect Clear will cover the same 120 million people that Sprint has been promoting.

My guess is we see some Android-branded smartphones being offered by your local cable company by the end of 2010. Anyone up for a Road Runner EVO 4G with Speed Boost?
