Rushed Mobile WiMax Standard Getting Closer… Hype Machine Waits

Just as stories are starting to show up trying to salvage the concept of fixed WiMax (great for backbone connections!), the folks who have been so keen to push the mobile version of WiMax forward can’t wait to let the news out that the standard may actually get approved by the end of this month. Of course, from standard approval to working equipment is a long way (as the fixed WiMax process is proving). So, while we’re going to start to hear more and more hyped up stories about mobile WiMax on the way, don’t expect to see anything of the sort until 2007 at the very earliest… and even that may be optimistic.
