Had a meeting with a provider of microwave based internet last week. He 
mentioned they were involved in the rollout of WiMax in the UK. 
Unfortunately, he also made it sound like it was unlikely to be 
available before 2010. By then the N810 will be old technology.

I guess, "I wouldn't hold my breath" would be the turn of phrase I'd 
use. Outside of the US, the spectrum used by WiMax is often highly 
regulated. I'm not sure of other European countries, but the UK is 
having some kind of auction at some point (or maybe had one?) but either 
way, it's not something that looks likely to happen within the lifetime 
of the N810.
