WiMAX coverage is still in pretty short supply around the US, but if you’re lucky enough to be in an area where the highspeed cellular data service is active then Motorola’s new double-act of WiMAX modems – one a PC Card, the other a desktop unit – might tickle your fancy. Both Wave 2-ready, each conforms to the 802.16e standard so should work with any commercial WiMAX service, and Motorola has apparently fettled the software to make log-on seamless. The PCCw200 PC Card is intended for mobile users, capable of logging-on to 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz networks, while the CPEi750 (shown after the cut) is designed for home use.
The CPEi750 has one data and two VoIP/ATA ports, and as with its PC Card brethren can use either the 2.5GHz or 3.5GHz networks. It’s expected to be available in mid-2008, while the PCCw200 is expected in Q2 2008.
