Off to the WiMAX event in Baltimore

WimaxbaltimoreQuick note that I’m on my way out the door for the two+hour drive down to Baltimore. Today is the WiMAX launch event. Note that it’s the launch event and not the launch: the service officially went live last week and has already seen some reviews. I’ll be doing my own hands on at the event but I won’t likely be testing coverage, bandwidth and latency on the fringe as the event is in the heart of the harbor area. I did just find out that the Lenovo folks have something waiting for me at the event. It’s a 30-day loaner device that’s currently available and it’s not a netbook. Hmmm……Enjoy your day with James as I go see the “hotspot as big as a city!” Oh and before anyone asks: yes, I’m taking the MSI Wind, which is now running Vista SP1. At under three-pounds and less than a foot wide, it’s great for travel and I can whip it out during the event without hurting myself or someone else. I’d better bring my EV-DO card too: once I leave Baltimore, I leave the WiMAX behind!
