Wimax is a telecommunications standard. The revision for fix services (broadband internet for small offices / home users) is the standard 802.16d from IEEE. It was basically designed to provide broadband internet using wireless technologies for the last mile, it evolved to 802.16e which is a mobile version.
The main importance of wimax is that it's IP based, the voice is used only over IP. It was mainly supported by intel, with chipsets with Rosedale codename.
The main difference respect to GSM / EDGE / 3G technologies is that the last ones were born as mobile and voice based, they are migrating now to offer IP services. These technologies were mainly supported by Qualcomm, creator of CDMA and others.
I think that at the end, all technologies will merge in one standard. Right now, wimax is still not deployed everywhere, there are some networks in Chicago, Rusia, Japan, Korea, etc, but it's not widely provided yet.

Salman, 28 Nov 2008What is WiMax ..? Some one please reply...WiMAX = 4G :) it's a new wireless technology for fast wireless data transfer over big distances. There is an WiMAX operator in my country offering 4Mb/s speeds. And can be used for VoIP. It's very nice.

HTC designers come from the FUTURE :D
The G~, 25 Nov 2008It says here that this phone has a 5MP camera, which, according to www.htc.com, it is a 3.2MP ... moreI think u have to chose which design is just 4 u. And HD doest have rus interface, max has no eng. Thes are both not PMP or photocam, and there is no 3G and poor wimax coverage in moscow.
i dont know what we have in america that russia doesnt have but they have video call and almost all of the world, do we have it? thank you verizon the best provider in the world. for example research how much u can get an htc phone in england with a contract and check how much u will pay for a regular phone from verizon. so whos the idiot here?
It says here that this phone has a 5MP camera, which, according to www.htc.com, it is a 3.2MP camera!
but i also want your opinion... which phone should i buy? HTC Touch HD, or HTC MAX 4G?
This is still not very useful as 4G (WiMax) is not very common yet and the coverage is still limited in most countries.

Yota is Scartel's brand. Scartel is owned by Telconet Capital Limited Partnership (74,9%) and the Russian Technologies State Corporation (Rostekhnologii, 25,1%)
recommended price for this device is 28900 rubles (840 euro). this include yota services (music, tv etc)
Luco, 24 Nov 2008Does anyone else think it is strange that they are calling a 2G phone Max 4G?There is no definition for 4G yet. Just an overall explanation - fast and allowing modern multimedia services - video calls, tv etc. That's why WiMax is considered to be 4G, because it's a lot faster.
