Our sources have informed us that Nokia has discontinued its N810 Internet Tablet WiMAX Edition, effective immediately. Distributors have apparently been asked to send any remaining stock back to Nokia. The abrupt cancellation is reportedly due to the slow WiMAX roll out in the USA as well as an issue with the current WiMAX switches in use not offering optimal performance.

While Nokia has confirmed that the N810 WiMAX Edition has reached its "end of life" state, the company rep that we spoke with did not wish to comment on any impact that the condition of the nation's young WiMAX network might have had on that decision.

The Nokia N810 Internet Tablet WiMAX Edition was announced one year ago, at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. Since then, only 2 markets, Baltimore and Portland, have seen their WiMAX networks go live. At this rate, WiMAX is starting to make BetaMax look like a good investment.
