As if the CES frenzy wasn’t enough, Clearwire officially launched its WiMAX service in Portland today, kicking off the new Clear network. Motorola is heavily involved, providing both infrastructure equipment, the WAP450 access point, and consumer devices, the CPEi 150 and the award-winning USBw 100 laptop adaptor.
I tried a prototype of the USB adaptor back in September and had a blast blogging and tweeting from the Smart Home in Chicago. I’m hoping to get back on WiMAX in the Motorola booth at CES.
For more WiMAX context, check out my interview with Motorola’s Fred Wright from last November.
