Intel (INTC) may try to make a WiMax invasion of mainland China using Taiwan as its starting point.
The big US chip company said it will put $500 million into building WiMax infrastructure in Taiwan.
According to The Inquirer "In a press conference, Lil Mohan, managing director of Intel’s WiMax programme, reckoned that WiMax could even be commercially unleashed on the US public as early as this quarter or the next, whilst Asia will just have to wait it out another year or so for their infrastructure to be complete sometime in 2009 or 2010."
The part about a US launch is a dream.
