WSJ.com - McCaw Succeeds, Avoiding Vonage Undertow
WSJ.com - McCaw Succeeds, Avoiding Vonage Undertow: "In exchange for the investment, Clearwire, based in Kirkland, Wash., has agreed to adopt Intel's version of WiMax technology. Intel plans to incorporate WiMax in its Centrino chipset that had propagated WiFi technology. Intel wants its chips to be standard issue with WiMax in the same way its Centrino technology currently is with WiFi. Until now, Clearwire had been using a proprietary technology. WiMax 'is a strategic initiative for Intel,' notes Intel spokeswoman Amy Martin. She wouldn't comment on what financial expectations Intel has for Clearwire."
