Sprint (S) says its 4G LTE network, which it's building out with Clearwire's (CLWR) help, will go live in five cities on July 15. The launch will be supported by five devices, including Samsung's Galaxy S III. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) lead in deploying LTE, the result of Sprint's prior decision to opt for the much less popular WiMAX as its 4G technology, has Sprint scrambling to catch up. Separately, Tero Kuittinen argues T-Mobile's woes could work to Sprint's benefit.
