While Xohm CEO Barry West confirmed some time ago that Baltimore,
Washington, D.C., and Chicago will go live with WiMax service this
month, some new details about actual Xohm devices - and launch plans
for a few more cities - have been kicking around the InterWebs over the
past week or so.
Sidecutreports spoke with the head WiMax Man himself last week and West offered up a few juicy tidbits of info:
Great ... So if you live in one of the soon to be Xohm-enhanced cities, what can you use to get online? Sidecutreports got a bit of info regarding the September launch:
West also said that Sprint will have a small assortment of devices
ready for the Baltimore launch, including modems from Zyxel and ZTE, as
well as two devices for laptops, one a USB-attached device from ZTE and the other a PC card from Samsung. Nokia's already announced Xohm-ready WiMax tablet, West said, should be available shortly after the Baltimore launch.
We're hoping to get some more info straight from the horse's mouth next week at CTIA Wireless in San Francisco. Meantime, you can mine an archived version of the My Xohm website for more details over on leo712's Evernote site.
