First Clearwire WiMAX PC card modem gains FCC approval, availablity in 2H07

Clearwire_logoClearwire’s WiMAX modem card got the official A-OK from the FCC yesterday, the first of many WiMAX products to be sure. Availability isn’t until the second half of the year and of course, will only be useful in Clearwire markets. This initial product fits in a Type II PC Card slot and will be compatible with Windows XP and Vista.

Given the wait for the hardware and service, I’m surprised that Clearwire hasn’t gone with an ExpressCard implementation even though adoption of it on the Windows-based hardware side is slow.
