The underpinnings of Google Android‘s future evolution is dependent on Clearwire and its WiMax technology – as today its investors are wavering.
MarketWatch posted that Clearwire has lost approximately 60% of its stock value in the past six months, which is causing concern for its strategic investors that include Time Warner, Intel, Comcast, Sprint, as well Google.
If Clearwire falters, so too does the future expansion of Android.
What does this have to do with Android?
Clearwire controls valuable wireless spectrums and WiMax technology.
WiMax technology brings high speed Internet of approximately 70 Mbps over a 30 mile range allowing mobile devices (including laptops) to have high speed Internet access as well voice nearly everywhere.
WiMax is also a great backup option for companies as well for disaster zones such as its use in New Orleans during Katrina.
The true evolution of Android is to provide fast and reliable Internet 24/7 for users not just on the phone, but any device including laptops and netbooks – with the payback to Google in more reliable user behavior information and monetization of the increased Internet browsing & searches with ads.
