Nokia has agreed to use WiMax chips from Intel in future mobile device designs, beginning with the N800 Internet tablet. The two companies are testing Intel's Baxter Peak chip set in Nokia WiMax devices and how it interacts with Nokia Siemens Networks' base station equipment. The N800 is expected to be the first Nokia WiMax-enabled device available and will work on the Xohm WiMax network being launched by Sprint later this year. Nokia and Intel did not say if their chip deal will extend to mobile phones.

This is cool and all but...

a company in USA upgrading to WIMAX is pretty sweet, i mean Im all ATT but if you need to have a tablet that runs the internet e-mail and everything else... i would rather have a SONY VAIO® UX Series Micro PC
it runs VISTA (though it uses AT&T's egde network) and you can get more work done with with a fully handheld PC than you can with an internet tablet
You could see that on Wimax. The idea of that network is to allow the kinds of devices of which you speak of to people who use data extensively.
