    No support for 4G in Centro so any speed increase would have to be a result of smaller things like tweaks to Sprints network, the Pre will have the same phone chip as the 800W so no 4G support there either.

What will be very interesting is when the Pre is available outside of Sprint in the US.
    WiMax is in Portland Oregon. It's not associated with Sprint but Clear Wireless.

    They are one in the same. That being said, non Sprint branded 4g is much cheaper than Sprint branded 4G.

    With the closing, Sprint contributed all of its 2.5 GHz spectrum and its WiMAX-related assets, including its XOHM business, to Clearwire. The implied equity valuation of Sprint’s contribution will result in approximately 51 percent ownership on a fully diluted basis, based on the initial target price of $20.00 per share.
