"What would be the point of going to 3G, when WiMax is around the corner?"

Will WiMax ever cover the expanses of rural and uninhabited areas along major highways? I see WiMax with VoIP as being an interesting contender in urban areas, but a stretch to see it replace the mobile phone networks.

On the other hand, an entirely new phone infrastructure based on WiMax or a derivative and VoIP is certainly an interesting disruptive business model.
