I think it will eventually but not in the short term (1-5 years),
Verizone if they in fact get the iPhone next year will probably pay a great deal to Apple to keep the iPhone only on AT&T and Verizone's.
it will keep Apple from having the market share that android does (yes I understand that we are talking handsets vs. OSs), But Apple has already demonstrated they can still make more money off of the (for want of a better expression) limited sales.

Plus its faster then 3G, and almost at wifi speeds.

WIMAX is only legitimate when the conditions are perfect...i tested Clearwire in my area for about a year and it was the worst internet service i ever experienced (and we were in the top rated signal market for the test period)...thank god i had comcast too.
WIMAX 2 at its core is only a signal boost and tower revamp...you'll still fall to the issues that plagued it before as it is very susceptible to geographic issues as well as other electronic interference.
It's a FRACTION of high speed wifi connections, seeing under 10mbps at best and averaging 2-4mbps. WIMAX has a LONNNNNNNNNNNNG way to go before its a legitimate outlet for consistent and competitive high speed connection.
