WiMAX
In the latest MikroPC-magazine (14/2007) there’s a small article by Veli-Matti Jalovaara about WiMAX.

“Nokia will be using Intel’s WiMAX-chipsets in the upcoming N-series tablets, which are meant to be in the market next year”

For me this was news, but after a quick session with google it seems that this in an old story. Anyways, linuxdevices.com makes an interesting notion: “Intel and Nokia partnered on WiMAX as early as 2005 — months before the launch of Nokia’s original Linux-based 770 Internet tablet.” Maybe the goal has always been to make a device that can connect itself to a long-range network like wimax. Will this change the way we see these tablets? For me they’re not yet always-connected devices by nature, even though I theoretically could keep the DUN-connection to my phone always on.
