Ppsbro's G100: no WiMax? Try Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

The G100 will use the 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz bands when it's released later this year, although Posbro hasn't said where it will initially be available. The manufacturer claims users will be able to download games and access the internet over WiMax, however Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cinnections can also be made.

So far, Posbro has only said that the device features a 4in touch-screen LCD that lifts up toreveal the two-control game pad. It hasn't announced any titles for the device.

Last month, Intel CEO Paul Otellini stated that WiMax will be the wireless technology to bring mobile broadband to the masses and that around 1.3bn people will regularly be within range of a basestation by 2012.

In the UK, telecoms giant BT is currently planning to install six WiMax base-stations in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, part of a new trial of the technology.
