Sprint's Xohm: The Mother of All Dragons?

Posted by: Olga Kharif on August 15, 2007

The Web is humming with rumors that Sprint will unveil a new WiMax services brand called Xohm tomorrow. That begs the question: What does Xohm mean?

A quick Google search reveals that the word denotes a legendary road or a mother of all dragons. If the rumors are indeed true, and Xohm is launched, I foresee a lot of fire-breathing, dragon-slaying jokes coming Sprint’s way. In fact, I expect to have to write stuff like “… and with Xohm, Sprint hopes to fry its competition,” and “Sprint hopes that Xohm will blaze — no pun intended — a trail…” myself.
