Nokia WiMAX in 2008

Nokia today revealed that it would be the latest to jump in with WiMAX support, according to a statement it made at the Web 2.0 Expo today. Although 3G and 3.5G wireless technology have only taken hold in Europe and North America within the past one to two years, the Finnish cellphone creator already plans devices will use the 4G-level WiMAX standard to help make its widgets, web browsers, and other tools work at real speeds of 2Mbps or more away from Wi-Fi hotspots.

No devices were named, but the first should be ready in early 2008 to coincide with Sprint's WiMAX network in the US and similar deployments around the world. Nokia joins Samsung and Motorola in supporting the Intel wireless standard.
