Motorola's USBw 200 WiMAX adapter takes less power, packs more drivers

Tim Stevens

If you're inhabiting one of the few but increasingly common localities with WiMAX internets beaming through the airwaves, you're probably looking for the least bulky and most efficient way to get connected. Motorola's latest doesn't look particularly more svelte than its previous USBw 100, but the USBw 200 is more efficient, requiring less than 1.5 watts of power despite the new "power boost" mode to connect more quickly to networks. Like its predecessor, it supports 2.3, 2.5, and 3.5GHz bands, and now includes Windows XP and Vista drivers on the device itself, so no pesky installation CD is required. No word on pricing or availability, but those figures will be largely be left to the discretion of wireless providers anyhow.
