802.11n coming to AirPort

Apple's may be prepping new versions of next generation wireless connectivity products, according a new Electronista report. According to the official Macworld Expo site, a presentation page for Volcano Wireless, Apple is allegedly preparing 802.11n versions of its AirPort Extreme platform, dubbed "X2" and "X4." The page claims theoretical speeds of up to 600Mbps, and other features such as beam focusing, greater range, and MIMO (Multiple-In Multiple-Out) support for better signal stability. None of these technologies are in current incarnations of Extreme, according to the report. Although one of the two Volcano presentation days is already over, interested parties can attend the next one January 9th at 11:15AM Pacific time, just 15 minutes after the Apple keynote ends.

    x2....

    I remember when X2 was associated with US Robotics' 56kbps connection speed on their pre-v.90 modems.

    Was that 10 years ago? Already???
