Reuters is reporting that Sprint said today it would develop with Google a new mobile Internet portal to offer Web search and social networking.

Sprint’s new WiMax high-speed wireless network and “location detection” will be combined with Google tools including e-mail, chat and other applications, according to the report. The service will go live as a test in Chicago, Baltimore and Washington by the end of 2007, with plans to cover 100 million people in the US by the end of 2008.
