and Sprint has the spectrum depth to accomodate the traffic.
"Why is the depth important? When it comes to wireless services, the depth of spectrum that you have dictates how wide a pipe you can offer customers — with more spectrum DEPTH you can have faster speeds, more customers, etc."
"Google has been investing aggressively in mobile technology. ...Google believes explosive growth in mobile advertising will justify its spending. For now, the market rem:ains relatively small, with U.S. mobile advertising revenue expected to reach $416 million this year, according to the research firm eMarketer Inc."
"AdMob has delivered nearly 140 billion ads on mobile Web sites and applications since its inception. That has helped AdMob double its revenue this year after tripling it last year."
"The boom in mobile device shipments is expected to continue and sales will double by 2014, according to a report released Monday by ABI Research."
The foregoing emphasizes the explosive growth in mobile (CELLULAR) devices and Google's bet (acquisition of Ad-Mob) on mobile advertising. How will Sprint benefit? Sprint has the spectrum depth (open first link of this post) to accomodate the coming "mob". Sprint has the spectrum depth to run smoothly (as opposed to the current AT&T clogging due to i-phone applications) when cellular use and speed (4G) explodes.
THE "MOB MEETING" IS JANUARY 7TH...IN LAS VEGAS...:)
"All of this thrown in together points at just one likely conclusion: Sprint is going to launch its first WiMax-enabled smartphone. Not only will the device have WiMax, but it will run Windows Mobile and it will be made by LG. Such a device would be quite big news for all three companies involved."
