Glenn Fleishman (also in InfoWorld).   802.15.3a (the leading contender is Ultra Wide Band — UWB) is one of those technologies that you have to wish was here yesterday

What's the joy with UWB? Very high speeds over very short distances. Imagine walking in with your laptop and even as you get near your office, a file transfer starts that, in a minute or so, moves hundreds of megabytes between them. Imagine plopping a hard drive next to your computer and seeing it mount. Imagine wheeling a shared scanner into your office and just starting to work. Imagine having several monitors, none of them connected, all of them providing extremely high-quality displays — and your computer is in a closet next door.
