    Kabul: One of the first cities with a proper Wimax installation

    The first thought that popped into my head after reading the headline “Kabul Goes Wimax” was, “Wow, Kabul has Wimax, and my T-Mobile BlackBerry can't even get EDGE.” (Note: I'm about an hour north of New York City, also known as “upstate.”) The embedded video has all you need to know.

    Even though WiMAX is only available in Atlanta, Baltimore, and Portland, Dell is now offering up the wireless broadband as an option on select notebooks. The upgrade only costs $60 for the Studio 15, Studio 17, and Studio XPS line, but don't forget that there will be a monthly cost from Sprint too. Read More

    WiMAX for EVAR! or so says Clearwire chairman

    AT&T and Verizon might have the lion's share of the mobile broadband market, but don't count Sprint and Clearwire's WiMAX out just yet. The chairman of Clearwire was nailed down for an interview at CTIA where he championed the high bandwidth wireless solution by talking about the low capacity of VZW's and AT&T's 3G network. And how WiMAX can even handle the Skype calls despite the… Read More

  • Samsung Mondi given some video time

    .The upcoming Samsung Mondi broke a few days ago and was recently spotted at CTIA. The large MID sounds great on paper thanks to some killer specs, most notably being the WiMAX internet connectivity and a 4.3-inch touchscreen. However, the Windows Mobile 6.1 underpinnings with the TouchWIZ OS is somewhat of a turnoff. That being said, this basic video has certainly peeked our interest. This might… Read More

    Samsung just unleashed the powerhouse that is the Mondi. This massive handset comes packing with speedy WiMAX support in a big daddy slider form factor.

    Russia's HTC Max 4G gets reviewed in-depth

    Perhaps it’s a little bit insensitive to post this; We already know the US isn’t getting the Touch HD, so chances are we’ll also be missing out on its WiMax enabled big brother, the Max 4G. It’s like rubbing salt on a fresh wound – but when said salt sports a 3.8″ WVGA screen and WiMax, we just can’t help ourselves. You’ll have to tough it through… Read More

    Baltimore's Xohm speeds scrutinized

    The promise of Wi-Max is nothing less than high-speed wireless internet practically anywhere you go. Of course, the reality falls short, as it often does, but it still shows itself a worthy successor to normal 3G and wi-fi. This industrious tester zoomed around Baltimore and tested it out in different areas (70% of the city is covered at the moment), finding that speeds were generally on the order… Read More
