Laptops - According to market research firm In-Stat, 5.7% of all notebooks were shipped with built-in Wi-Fi radios in 2002, and this share will rapidly grow to 35% in 2003, and to 90% by 2005. This coming only a few years after Wi-Fi became a widely-adopted standard, whereas it took at least ten years for modems and wired ethernet ports to appear as standard equipment on laptops.

PDAs -- HP and Toshiba have already introduced PocketPC devices with Wi-Fi built in, and many more Wi-Fi-embedded PDA devices are coming.

Cell phones - Cellphones will soon be Wi-fi-compatible, taking traffic off of overloaded (and expensive) cellular networks . Motorola already plans to introduce a cell phone with integrated Wi-Fi by the end of 2003.

Automobiles -- New cars are already packed with data-hungry devices that could make use of Wi-Fi. Soon you will pull into any service station (in the coming years, they will all be hot spots) and top up on your data along with your gas.

Gameboys -- Gaming devices will connect to private and public Wi-Fi networks and become a platform for multi-player games. Again, a low-cost add-on to existing products.

Consumer electronics devices -- Once super-cheap low-power Wi-Fi chips are available, it isn't a stretch to see them added to all manner of consumer electronics devices. Anything that could benefit from the ability to send and receive information, such as MP3 players (download music in any hot spot) and digital cameras (upload pictures right after you take them wherever you are).
