Nokia N810 WiMax discontinued.

n810wimax According to Mobile Burn, the Nokia N810 WiMax version has been discontinued. Distributors have been asked to return the devices and the source states that it’s due to both slow rollout and a problem with the current WiMax switches in the network.

Personally I’m surprised that the WiMax even went on sale. I can’t imagine that the customer base was that big with just two new rollouts in the U.S.  Lets hope that Nokia are just going to hold back until the new tablet is out. Sometime in Q2 I suspect.

    I’m surprised they sold it as well. They should have first delivered a N810 WCDMA Edition (with EDGE and HSPA), since that’s a wireless WAN that actually exists, and has a sizeable customer base. Instead, those numerous and established customers have to wait for the Maemo 5 platform (which will have HSPA support), while the niche customers who have WiMAX were able to get this marketing dud (but I’m sure it wasn’t a technical/engineering dud).

    Nokia needs nothing else other than a built-in miniPCI slot or a powered USB port for adding a 3G modem internally or externally.

    That said, why I want the N810 instead of the Aigo now running XP fine?

    Nice information on increasing your niche video website vision.
