    Although ASUS promised in January that the company is planning to integrate WiMAX technology into its next generation Eee PCs, DigiTimes today reported that this is not going to happen and instead of WiMAX the recently revealed Eee PC 901 will get Bluetooth as standard option.

    As much as I like the idea of WiMAX (man it would be wonderful to tell our local ISP's to go screw themselves, wouldn't it?), the technology has not matured yet. Might not be for a few couple of years more.

    I would rather wait than have a glitchy, and less than ok product. Just my view. (example of my view: VISTA)
