The much-anticipated successor to Wi-Fi is DOA - even with the support of tech titans like Google, Motorola, Intel and Comcast. The broadband wireless service for mobile devices was supposed to do what Wi-Fi hotspots couldn't: let users surf the Web anywhere, anytime. But WiMax's two developers - Sprint and Clearwire - have stumbled in their rollouts. Clearwire's coverage is limited and Sprint so far sells it only in Baltimore. The result: rivals like Verizon and AT&T are rushing out an even faster wireless technology, called LTE. Consumers seem willing to wait.
