    Nokia is showing off a iteration that is new of WiMax form of its Internet tablet during the CTIA conference in Las Vegas.

    The most recent and fifth form of the N810 tablet can be commercially available along with Xohm's official launch, scheduled when it comes to quarter that is second. Xohm could be the WiMax network that Sprint Nextel is building, with test networks already running in Chicago plus the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., area. The N810 that is new will available initially only into the U.S.

    Previous iterations could connect to the web over Wi-Fi, with cellular connectivity notably absent from a computer device built because of the no. 1 cell-phone maker on the planet. The tablet, that is slightly larger than a smartphone that is typical much smaller than a laptop, does let users hook up to the web over cellular networks, but via a Bluetooth link to their mobile phones. The new WiMax version will also provide Wi-Fi, Nokia said.

    The WiMax N810 are going to be available on Nokia's Web site and certainly will also be sold by Xohm. Buyers can sign up for Xohm service on the air from the device before subscribing for service if they buy it.

    The unit is expected to be priced much like the other versions associated with the tablet. Probably the most recent costs US$439 on Nokia's internet site.

    WiMax offers faster speeds as compared to existing cellular networks. Nokia expects users will receive download rates of 2M bps to 4M bps, with bursts as fast as 10M bps. By contrast, Sprint's EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) network, as an example, offers average download speeds of as high as 1.4M bps.

    While other cellular technologies like HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) and EV-DO are not on Nokia's road map for the N810, the organization will consider them for future years. "We're not excluding other technologies," said Mark Louison, president of Nokia in united states. The N810 is made to be an open device that any developer can build applications for, and so it is well-suited to Xohm, that has said it promises to allow any device and any service to operate on the network, Louison said.

    While Nokia is eager for the N810 WiMax version to be used by other operators, Clearwire customers won't be able to utilize it, at least for the present time. Which is because Clearwire isn't yet making use of the standard kind of WiMax, 802.16e, sustained by Nokia and Xohm.

    The version that is earliest associated with tablet, the N800, had only an on-screen keyboard, but subsequent versions feature a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. The tablets run using the maemo Linux-based OS2008 system that is operating include a variety of applications such as for instance a Mozilla browser, Skype and Google Talk. In addition it includes GPS (Global Positioning Service).
