In this article the author reflects on the business machinations around mobile WiMAX technology. She cited Intel Corp.'s recent moves to exit the wireless handset chip business and immediately turn around and plunk down $600 million to invest in wireless broadband service provider Clearwire Corp. and Motorola Inc.'s decision to then acquire Clearwire's infrastructure provider NextNet Wireless Inc. She asserts that wireless players are arguing internally about which version of wireless broadband technology should be deployed, and likely a few versions will be commercially deployed.
