Nokia will support Sprint's WiMAX network with an N800 tablet. The information comes from head of Open Source Ops Dr. Ari Jaaksi. On top of WiMAX, it'll retain Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. This is the device, BTW, that has been hacked to get Apple-like scrolling UIs and virtual keyboards. Pretty cool, but by the time the Sprint Network goes national, the N800 is going to be long in the tooth. [Linux Devices]

C'mon gizzy. Let's be fair. At about the time that WiMAX is everywhere, Nokia will have put out the N880 or whatever the frag is the next gen of the platform. They work on about that time frame in hardware refresh cycles for the platform.
