This brief item from CNet is pretty misleading: The article makes WiBro sound like a new technology developed to allow users to watch TV on their cell phones. While I’m not totally clear on the timeframe, WiBro has been in the works for around the same time if not longer than WiMax. It is a technology developed in Korea as a mobile broadband wireless technology. But since it is based on OFDM, like WiMax, and since it became clear that Korea would become perhaps the only country to deploy WiBro, the two camps are now working together to ensure interoperability of WiBro and 802.16e. For a bit more information, read a general overview of WiBro that TheFeature ran late last year.
