They'll start shipping in Q1 2008, meaning useless Wi-Fi could be the new useless USB in just a few short months. Or, more practically, you could download a lot more porn leeching from your local coffee shop's Wi-Fi before your battery keels over on you. Oh, and it'd be a boon for the battery life of Wi-Fi-equipped smartphones, media players, etc. [Dean Takahashi]
