We've discussed the Samsung M8000 before as the first phone poised to use the WiBro (Wireless Broadband) network. But to our delight, it looks like Samsung has brought the phone to CES and is actually demonstrating this futuristic service (that Korea will have by the first half of the year) to us here in the USA. WiBro is based on the mobile WiMAX technology (IEEE 802.16e TDD OFDMA standard), that will be able to deliver voice, data and video at speeds of up to 120 km per hour. The M8000 has a QWERTY keypad and Samsung is showing off WiBro services including broadcasting, home networking, video conferencing, video on demand, mobile navigations, and push-to-talk. Now, when exactly do we get it here? Huh??
