Wi-Max v 3G, etc

It’s perhaps only to be expected, but some of the major mobile telecoms are sometimes a bit dismissive about Wi-Max. According to Silicon.com, one Nokia executive thinks it is nice technology, but over-hyped; an Intel executive sees Wi-Max peacefully co-existing alongside 3G; and Siemens doubt that VOIP over Wi-Max will seriously threaten existing voice services. With Wi-Max standards still to be agreed, the article says we are unlikely to see Wi-Max laptops until about 2007, while low-end mobiles with Wi-Max are a further 3-4 years away.
