Boost and Virgin make WiMax official, along with HTC Android smartphones

We’ve known for a while that Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, both subsidiaries of Sprint, would soon offer their customers 4G service via WiMax. Yesterday both companies made their respective announcements. The services will commence on May 31st — which is just a few days after Virgin will change its smartphone upgrade policy. As we learned previously, Boost will get the HTC EVO Design 4G, while Virgin will get the EVO V 4G — which is known on Sprint as the EVO 3D. We’ll make sure to post on the 31st to again note the availabilities of these handsets.
