Nokia ends production of N810 WiMAX tablet

Although it barely saw the light of day, Nokia's N810 Internet Table WiMAX Edition is no longer in production. Nokia said it is ceasing production of the highly touted device, despite the fact that WiMAX is finally ramping up in the U.S. The tablet only became available in October in conjunction with Sprint's launch of WiMAX in Baltimore.

InformationWeek asked the company about the move, and received this statement: "The Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition has reached the expected end of its life cycle. We will continue to follow the WiMAX network development and new product decisions will be considered based on the evolution of the business."

The struggling economy and the fact that LTE appears to be the winner in the next-generation wireless game could be the main reasons why Nokia is making the move.
