Intel talked about WiMAX a lot during this year's IDF, not to mention the many demos of its Echo Peak WiFi/WiMAX PCIe cards:
Echo Peak will occupy the same form factor as Intel's current WiFi products, available in either a Minicard or Half Minicard for use in notebooks. According to Intel, power envelope should remain unchanged for Intel's Echo Peak vs. currently shipping Intel WiFi cards.
WiMAX, if well deployed, is designed to truly enable mobile broadband for notebooks and mobile internet devices. WiMAX will be a part of Intel's 2008 Montevina platform, and will be supported by Sprint and Clearwire in the US, and KDDI in Japan.
Mobile WiMAX should bring WiFi performance to users on the go, welcome to 4G
