WiMax: Still Big in Japan
SoftBank Corp. says it will spend over $2 billion on WiMax if it wins a license for the technology in Japan. The company is bidding for one of two WiMax licenses planned by the Japanese government.
Like the existing U.S. wireless broadband spectrum, the Japanese WiMax spectrum will be in 2.5GHz band. As you'd imagine, Japanese vendors are already pushing ahead with cool lookin' WiMax phones. — Dan Jones, Site Editor, Unstrung
