When it comes to portable/mobile devices, the bulk of early WiMAX device shipments will be in the form of external laptop clients and embedded mobile PCs, reports In-Stat.Growth in both external clients and laptops will benefit from the lower cost of the technology compared to cellular, and in some cases, lack of service contracts, the high-tech market research firm says. In-Stat believes these devices will attract both monthly subscribers and session-based users.

"WiMAX will grow by meeting pent-up demand and offering users a lower cost alternative to existing services," says Daryl Schoolar, In-Stat analyst. "There will be different classes of operator control over devices. Despite what some technology advocates have said, not all WiMAX devices will follow the Wi-Fi model of full consumer ownership and control."

In-Stat also found:

* Annual WiMAX device shipments will break the 10 million mark in 2010.

* Future trends with WiMAX devices are multi-band radios and chipsets that support both LTE and WiMAX.

* Challenges to WiMAX device growth are current 3G services, LTE, and the current economic climate.
