TechDirt bucks some of the tide by noting WiMax pullouts, delays: The analysts at TechDirt stick by a 2003 prediction that 2008 would be the year of mobile WiMax. They cite several unrelated events which, combined, may lead to a delay in the expected 2007 rollout of mobile WiMax. Sprint Nextel had committed to offering service using this technology by next year, and Intel, Motorola, and Samsung said they’d all have hardware. But TechDirt’s reading of the portents is that it’s not baked fully enough. They note that anything that claims to be mobile WiMax today isn’t—there’s no certification—but is rather something mobile WiMax-like, such as Clearwire’s current deployment that uses its former NextNet division’s Expedience technology.
