The development of the WiMax, a revolutionary wireless system able to provide cable-free high speed internet over long distance, might be slowing down despite enthusiastic expectation or capabilities of this system.
Most companies involved in developing WiMax devices, peripherals or components are modifying their strategy: Ericsson stopped all on-going development of WiMax-dedicated products, while other manufacturers have slow down their investments or R&D plans.
If Intel, main initiator and supporter of this technology does not give a strong signal in a near future, this highly anticipated and advertised long-distance wireless system might simply become a new candidate for the vaporware awards.
