I also have the ability to use WiMax on my "Smartphone"
(Spr!nt - HTC-EVO 4G). In fact, I'm currently using the phone as a
"hotspot" (router/gateway) to connect to the interweb, in order to
collect/respond to my mail. For those already familiar, I'm not
using the vendor provided (androd/froyo-2.2) HotSpot, but rather
an opensource tether app - in this case wireless, not USB.
To the point, I'd be willing, and able to contribute to further
development on this front. My phone is "rooted", and I'm quite
familiar with the system -- it's a heavily hacked (by me) stock
ROM. My development system is FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE /AMD64.
I would prefer to collaborate with others on this.
Thank you for all your time, and consideration.
P.S. the vendors name above, was intentionally obscured. :)
