Neat trick... considering...

There is not yet a WiMAX 5.8 GHz interoperability profile.
Because there is not yet a WiMAX 5.8 GHz WiMAX interoperability profile, there have not yet been any 5.8 GHz interoperability tests. Because there has not yet been any WiMAX 5.8 GHz interoperability tests, there cannot be any WiMAX 5.8 GHz products certified as having completed the tests and declared interoperable.

And, unless a product has been through the interoperability tests and declared interoperable, it cannot use the WiMAX brand name.

Nope - no _5.8 GHz_ (license-exempt is assumed) WiMAX products. PERHAPS by year end... but I suspect it will be longer given that the vendors are going to be VERY busy selling all the 3.5 GHz (licensed, non-US markets) gear they can make AND getting Mobile WiMAX out will consume the available interoperability testing facilities and the attentions of the Mobile portions of the WiMAX industry.

5.8 GHz WiMAX is kind of an afterthought at the moment for the WiMAX industry.

What is going on with unlicensed WIMAX?
Is there any products released yet or about to be released?
