Clearwire on Tuesday said it will launch its 4G WiMax services in additional cities including Los Angeles, Miami, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.

The company, the primary carrier bringing WiMax services to consumers, has launched 4G service in 27 markets with plans to bring big markets like New York City, Washington D.C. and San Francisco online.

Among other details divulged at CTIA:

  • WiMax is embedded on its 30th PC;
  • Clearwire touted a rather tenuous hook to Apple's iPad by noting that its Clear Spot, can create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot that can bring 4G to any device---including the iPad.
  • The company will improve its back-end technology and expand cell sites to boost end user speeds.
  • Dell's Mini 10 netbook will be embedded with WiMax.
  • Clearwire customers are consuming more than 7GB of data a month.
