ITU Strategy and Policy Unit: "Is WiMax being hyped?"

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Strategy and Policy Unit's newslog has a brief note on WiMAX questioning whether the wireless telephone industry will embrace the new technology since it is a potential threat to the new 3G wireless telephone networks.

My own question is whether the wireless phone industry can really stop WiMAX, at least in the U.S., if it does everything its' backers (most notably Intel) claim. I just don't see the wireless telphone industry emerging as major broadband players in U.S.

Update: I was just going over some of wireless broadband guru Esme Vos' recent articles on her site -- I was interested to read that she's very skeptical of 3G technology backers' ability to stop, delay or hinder WiMAX.
