Boost-VirgSprint may be killing off its Wimax line in favor of LTE, but that doesn't mean the nation's first widespread 4G network is actually going to die. During this mornings Q1 earnings call, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse announced that Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile -- two prepaid names it manages -- both will have Wimax devices later this year.

That's particularly interesting for Android fans on the prepaid carriers because it almost certainly means Wimax Android devices.

Hesse promised additional information later this year.
