Qualcomm has acquired the 802.16e portfolio from TeleCIS: Qualcomm says they wanted engineering resources (uh, people?), and would apply those resources towards a range of technology, including mobile WiMax if demand materializes.
GigaOm rounds up the mobile WiMax devices that are slated for appearance: Nokia, early 2008; LG, one model for sale in Korea soon, US next year; Samsung, WiBro in Korea, no US timetables; ZTE and Zyxel, only general information.
The Finnish firm says it will have devices with mobile WiMax embedded by early 2008: With several companies competing for contracts from Sprint and Clearwire, there are now bragging rights to be obtained by having the first this or that.
