SPOTLIGHT: Nokia hoists the WiMAX flag 180 feet


Nokia setup a massive crane in the parking lot in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CTIA Wireless to demonstrate the new capabilities of the new Nokia N810 Internet Tablet, which is now WiMAX (802.16e) enabled. Nokia strapped 20 journalists into roller coaster style seats attached to a board meeting-like table and lifted the entire apparatus 180 feet into the air. In front of each journalist was a cup holder and a N810 device running on a WiMAX demo the company had set up in the lot. Article
