After being pleasantly surprised by the rate of WiMAX growth in the states as evidenced in yesterday's keynote, I decided to go and give the Samsung Mondi the once-over.  It's a big ol' tablet with a recessed screen, a somewhat interesting custom interface, middle-of-the-road specs, and a slide down keyboard that's a pretty poor affair.  Oh, yes, and of course, it has WiMAX. Naturally, as is the universal law of all WiMAX demos at conventions, things weren't quite working yet.

Maybe it's that the Mondi was pretty beat up by day 2, but even so, the Mondi is not the device that will spearhead  WiMAX adoption.
