Airport Extreme w/802.11n?

Some news from Apple's Macworld San Francisco keynote may have slipped out inadvertently, the official expo site reveals. Mentioned on a presentation page for Volcano Wireless, Apple is allegedly preparing 802.11n versions of its Airport Extreme platform, dubbed "X2" and "X4." The page claims theoretical speeds of up to 600Mbps, and other features such as beam focusing, greater range, and MIMO (Multiple-In Multiple-Out) support for better signal stability. None of these technologies are in current incarnations of Extreme. Though one of the two Volcano presentation days is already over, interested parties can attend the next one January 9th at 11:15AM Pacific time, just 15 minutes after the Apple keynote ends.
