More on Sprint/Clearwire and WiMAX

As I have mentioned earlier, Sprint and Clearwire have ended their partnership plans. Several articles (see this and this, for example) are wondering what the future of mobile WiMAX is, especially in light of the recent LTE test. BusinessWeek has speculated about investment by Intel, in light of the strategic importance of this technology (see this), or a significant engagement with Google (see this as well).

Do you think that this is another case of analysts falling over themselves to get attention (i.e. a lot of hot air)? Or, is this truly a deep blow to mobile WiMAX prospects?
