Nokia WiMAX mobile phones in 2008

At the recent WiMAX technology conference in Boston, Nokia’s representatives told the press that they will make the WiMAX capable mobile devices sometime during 2008. Roughly at the same time, Nokia rolled out a WiMAX-enabled version of its lightweight base station, previously used just for transmitting HSDPA and W-CDMA third-generation cellular signals.

Those of you who follow the telecom news, probably remember that Sprint Nextel announced last August its intention to make a 4 Mbps WiMAX network by the fourth quarter of next year.

It will be interesting to watch the developments surrounding WiMAX and other 4G technolgoies. And, even more interesting to see them integrated in the future smartphones. Full story.
