Lenovo WiMAX ThinkPads

Lenovo says it has added an option for Intel's long-range wireless technology, WiMAX, to several of its ThinkPad notebooks. The computers are specifically intended to coincide with Sprint's new Xohm WiMAX service, and include variants of the X301, T400, Sl300 and SL500. The option will become available on the W500, W700, SL400 and X200 later this year, and plans are in the works for the IdeaPad Y530.

Part of the support entails adding WiMAX to each notebook's Access Connections program, where it be listed alongside potential Wi-FI connections. The actual WiMAX receivers are from Intel's WiMAX/WiFi Link 5050 series; prices for WiMAX-ready ThinkPads start at $720.
