02/19/2010, Sprint has just announced that they will be introducing the first 4G WiMAX handset before the second half of the year is over, and while we don’t know much (very little, actually) about the phone, rumors point towards it being a new Google Android-powered device that has HTC’s design behind it. Guess this piece of news will affect (in a positive manner) folks who live in Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, […]
02/19/2010, Just as we reported earlier, Dell has finally rolled out their WiMAX-enabled Inspiron Mini 10 netbooks to the market, where you can opt to throw in the Intel Centrino 802.11n + WiMAX 6250 card for an additional $60 on top of the netbook’s base price. For folks who want just 802.11n sans WiMAX, tough luck – Dell’s best efforts would just land you the 802.11g card. Apart from this addition, […]
02/07/2010, WiMAX might not be as popular as Wi-Fi, but it’s certainly gaining traction and Dell looks like it wants to take advantage of that. The Dell Mini 10 has recently paid a visit to the FCC to be approved, and amongst the specs you’ll note that it sports WiMAX. Built-in WiMAX would certainly be very useful to folks who use WiMAX often, as you won’t have to stick a chubby […]
01/20/2010, With the netbook market clearly making itself a mainstream source of income for many hardware manufacturers, there might be a glut of older models that are left behind on store shelves. Clear takes advantage of this situation by offering a dated Samsung NC10 model (which came out in 2008 and having been replaced by the N110/N120 series in 2009 alongside new Pineview-powered models this year) that comes with a built-in […]
01/07/2010, Sprint will begin selling its Overdrive wireless WiMax router on January 10th, allowing users to connect Wi-Fi devices to its WiMax network. The Overdrive will allow users to connect up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices. The Overdrive device will set you back $100 with a 2-year contract of $60/month. With that, you’ll get unlimited data over Sprint’s WiMax network and 5GB of data over the 3G network. Will you be […]
12/22/2009, CES has always been a hotbed for new technological announcements and advancements, and next year’s event isn’t going to be any different. Sprint and Microsoft are rumored to have a WiMax (4G) Windows Mobile smartphone in the works, waiting for CES 2010 to roll around and catch everyone by surprise. The anticipation is further built-up with invitations sent out for a press conference that will take place a day before […]
10/07/2009, [CEATEC 2009] UQ, the sole Wimax carrier in Japan was showing this personal Wi-Fi hotspot device. It connects to the internet via WiMax, and serves as a wireless router for your personal devices. It’s like a MiFi, if you are familiar with that one. When WiMax is not available (in the subway and other “difficult” places), users can connect freely via Wi-Fi, thanks to the partnership between UQ and paid […]
09/20/2009, Word has been going around that Sprint will be looking to release a cell phone that supports WiMAX and EV-DO, though not much else was said before this. Now it seems that analysts are suggesting that Android will be the platform of choice or such an adventure, and Samsung might be the manufacturer of the necessary hardware. If the rumor is true, the device is rumored to launch when Clearwire […]
07/21/2009, We played with the Samsung Mondi, aka (SWD-M100) back in February in Barcelona and we liked the design. On August 1st, Samsung is now making this mobile internet device (MID) available in the U.S on Sprint’s WiMax network. The Samsung Mondi is among the first WiMax devices to be released in the U.S and hopefully, you are lucky enough to live in an area with WiMax coverage. The device runs […]
07/21/2009, Samsung has recently announced that they will make available the Samsung Mondi to the masses – touted to be the most advanced Mobile WiMAX-enabled handheld device in the U.S. This touchscreen-enabled Mondi was specially designed to be used with the Clear Mobile WiMAX service from Clearwire that is readily available in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Portland, OR and future WiMAX markets. The Samsung Mondi is able to take full advantage of […]
07/09/2009, Sony looks set to unveil its Vaio P WiMAX edition sometime later this month (30th July in Japan to be exact), where it will boast of an integrated 4G mobile broadband modem to help you remain connected at all times no matter where you are. Pre-orders are set to make an appearance from July 27th onwards, so you might as well start preparing the dough.
06/08/2009, Sony also wants in on the WiMax notebook game with new releases in the form of the Vaio Type Z and Type P, although they did not release any information such as release dates and prices. We’d warrant an end of June release in Japan, but don’t take our word for it.
06/07/2009, Toshiba also doesn’t want to be left out of the WiMAX notebook game, revealing their first WiMAX notebook for the Japanese market in the form of the Dynabook SS RX2/WAJ. Instead of a hard drive, it will feature a blazing fast 512GB SSD, powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400 processor. We guess the inflated €3,190 price tag is mainly due to the inclusion of the 512GB SSD, so […]
06/07/2009, Panasonic has rolled out its first WiMAX-ready notebook in Japan, where it will be powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo SP9600 2.53GHz processor. In addition, you will get 2GB RAM (which we think you might want to upgrade), a hungry 500GB hard drive and a 14.1” LCD display with a resolution of 1,440 x 900. The trackpad itself looks interested, coming in a round form factor with some weird […]
