Clearwire looks to Google for apps

US wireless broadband player Clearwire is teaming up with Google to deliver a bundle of the web giant’s apps to its customers.

Clearwire said it will begin migrating its existing customers to Gmail and Google Calendar in the first half of this year and will also give users access to Google Talk.

“Clearwire is excited to launch our relationship with Google to further our commitment to deliver all the internet has to offer to a person rather than a place. Both companies are built on the foundation of providing a simple to use, rich and open Internet experience and we believe the addition of these communications tools will be a tremendous benefit to Clearwire’s customers”, said Scott Richardson Clearwire’s chief strategy officer.

Clearwire also plans to use AdSense for Search to provide Google search capabilities on future Clearwire portal applications.

The wireless broadband player is preparing to roll out a mobile WiMAX network in the US, something it was originally planning to do in partnership with Sprint. However, Clearwire and Sprint terminated their obligations regarding the WiMAX build out partnership in November and as a result it looks like both companies are preparing to go it alone.
