Unwired aspires to WiMAX telephony with help from Mitsui

Unwired gets more ambitious by the day: it has teamed up with Mitsui to help develop mobile WiMAX applications and devices that it sees as one day enabling it to compete with cellular telephony.
Unwired has announced that Mitsui & Co will invest between $5 million and $8 million in Unwired, and the two companies have undertaken to share information and to work together on the development of mobile WiMAX and on mobile applications "that will be able to be used by Internet and mobile phone users on mobile WiMAX and mobile phone networks around the world."
