Opinions vary on the likelihood of success.

Among the big tech headlines this week with competitive implications for radio was the announcement that Sprint Nextel and Clearwire would form a joint venture to deploy the first nationwide mobile WiMax network.

The Washington Post discusses the implications, saying thanks to the multi-billion-dollar venture, “your cellphone may turn into a far more powerful, versatile and perhaps costlier mobile device.”

But Marguerite Reardon blogs on CNET speculating that the new “company could be doomed before it even gets out of the gate.”
