Nokia Teams with Intel for Internet WiMAX Tablet

Nokia and Nokia Siemens Networks are testing interoperability across Intel's forthcoming WiMAX silicon for laptops and mobile Internet devices, Nokia WiMAX devices and Nokia Siemens Networks WiMAX infrastructure equipment.



Nokia also said it will use Intel's WiMAX silicon product, which is codenamed "Baxter Peak" and designed specifically for mobile Internet and consumer electronic devices, in its forthcoming Nokia Nseries Internet Tablets. Nokia plans to ship the WiMAX-enabled open Internet devices in 2008.



The companies said they have already started testing their equipment and devices with dozens of other equipment vendors' products for interoperability and conformance with industry standards in Sprint's Herndon, Va. testing labs.


Nokia Nseries Internet Tablets are based upon the open source Linux operating system, to enable both Nokia and Intel's vision of the "open Internet" -- delivering broadband Internet experience to users on the go. In 2008, this platform with Intel's Baxter Peak WiMAX silicon will work on the Sprint Xohm WiMAX network.
