Sprint Nextel said Wednesday that it would add Denver; Kansas City, Mo.; and Minneapolis, to its 2010 WiMAX launch targets, joining previously announced New York, San Francisco and three others as the next cities to link to the Clearwire network. For its part, Clearwire said it was on schedule for its network to reach 120 million people by year-end, with Houston next to launch. Clearwire CEO Bill Morrow said the company intended to broaden its third-party distribution base this year and added that entering the handset business remained a back-burner item.
