WiMAX: Comming Soon To A Device Near You

Nokia will add WiMAX to cell phones in 2008, and although it seems to be a long way off to many, the technology to connect to the new 802.16e standard has already begun to be rolled out in some areas. By the way, the new mobile version of WiMAX is what you'll be seeing in 2008. Nokia has said that its WiMAX base stations will be available commercially in the 2.5 gigahertz band at the end of 2007 and for 3.5 gigahertz in the first quarter of 2008.

I hope this means we'll see WiMAX added to future Internet Tablets from Nokia as well. I think this could beat out T-Mobile's UMA solution in the long run.
