Integrated WiMAX dropped from Asus Eee PC 901 for now

E900Hoping for WiMAX in your Asus Eee PC 901? You’ll need to keep hoping a little longer if DigiTimes is accurate. They say that Asustek is dropping the WiMAX option on the 8.9-inch notebook for the U.S. because “the WiMAX market will not reach maturity in 2008.”Larger display Asus models will still see integrated WiMAX capability this year, but like me, it appears that Asus is taking a “wait and see” approach for the broadband technology here in the ‘States. Contract customers will still have the ability to order WiMAX in the 901, but I’m not certain who that applies to: businesses and educational entities, perhaps?
