WiMAX Hype ending?

Just like it started, the WiMAX bubble is started to deflate. It must be, because research firms who make a living out of selling big research reports and promises and grand visions are scaling down the expectations. I got both press releases in my in-box, hence no links. ABI Research and ISuppli have doubts about the so called mega-billion dollar potential of WiMAX. The market is likely to reach $2.5 billion by 2009, according to iSuppli, a research firm. The problem with ISuppli is that it is giving the wrong reasons for the take-up – iSuppli thinks that the best potential for WiMax will be as a next generation mobile network. Not sure what to say, but guys stay focused on tracking the monitor businesses.
