If we look back to the lessons of Centrino and WiFi it becomes more understandable. Intel spent like a European tourist on a whirlwind shopping tour of NYC then, too. Why? Because WiFi opened up the wireless market to a device that Intel can really shift silicon on -- the notebook computer.
A WiMax notebook with Intel silicon is one of the first gizmos that is being tested for the WiMax network. Intel is hoping to repeat its WiFi experience with WiMax and have its chipsets in other form factors, too.
