    OK, the Airport stuff (802.11b/g) is great... but kind of short-ranged. Meanwhile, the wireless-telecom world has since moved to 1xRTT (fast, cell-phone range wireless data capacilities), and now moving fast towards 1xEV-DO (VERY fast, DSL-speed, cell-phone range wireless data capacilities).

    The hardware (PCMCIA cards) is there, but I've yet to see any word about the Mac getting any support for these new generations of long-range wireless data technologies.

    Anyone knows if we'll get to use the Mac with the new technologies (1xRTT and/or 1xEV-DO) ?

    Verizon has gone commercial with their 1xEV-DO services, Sprint just announced their plan to get there: Sprint Announcement.
