Submission + - PCMCIA WiMax Card Finally?

livnah writes: "In a press release last week (http://www.clearwire.com/company/news/05_01_07.ph p), Clearwire announced that they'd be offering their customers WiMax connectivity via a new Motorola Type-II PCMCIA card at some date later this year. From the release:

The FCC's approval of our laptop card is a significant milestone in bringing to market a 'true broadband' wireless service with a device that facilitates even greater portability than our existing modem permits," said Perry Satterlee, Clearwire president and chief operating officer. "We expect the new laptop card to broaden our potential customer base with more opportunities for customers to access and experience our fast, simple, portable, reliable and affordable wireless broadband services."
