    Someone pointed me to this, so just to make the fruitphoners drool I'll
    post it for ya. As I understand it, Portland's Wimax is different than the
    Xohm flavor installed in Baltimore, pre-Clearwire. Not sure how. There's
    also a worldwide dispute as to what BAND the Wimax should be on....to
    standardize the planet, JUST THIS ONCE!

    Nokia recalled all the distributors' stock but the word I got about
    recalling the sold units from users I haven't found. Nokia said the poor
    WiMax rollout in the USA in only 2 cities is the reason.

    In other news, Intel and Time-Warner are both claiming large losses in the
    partnership deal they have with Clear/Xohm on financial news reports:

    This writeoff may be related to Intel's very poor performance in 4Q,
    missing the target quite a bit and Time-Warner's $25 BILLION writedown on
    assets as its business goes in the dumper from the depression....

    There are two WiMax standards, 802.16d and 802.16e. The 16d version
    is for fixed links and is essentially a DSL replacement (this was WiMax's
    original purpose), the 16e version has mobility tacked on.

    All of the original Clearwire's 40-something city deployments were 16d.
    Portland also had a 16d deployment, by Freewire Broadband. Xohm in
    Baltimore is 16e, as is the new Clearwire service in Portland (the latter
    was only announced on Monday!), and, despite many announcements by other
    operators, these two cities are the only places I know of in the US where
    16e service is actually being sold.

    Since a WiMax-equipped N810 clearly only makes sense if there is 16e
    service for it to use, I'll bet Nokia didn't sell to many of them. 3G
    service for the iPhone to use does exist, even if it is AT&T's.

    I also notice that the WiMax laptop interfaces have given in and
    gone massively multi-band, e.g.

    Given the frequency range it covers I'll bet the antennas are not
    very effective.

    Thanks. The Wimax biz emags are talking about 3.65Ghz band, now.

    Too much hustle to get it on the air....on non-standardized crapware.

    Telecoms would do anything to destroy it.....including taking a loss, I
    assume, as the profits the old way are simply much more.
