WiGig 60GHz specification completed: 7Gbps WiFi promised

It's been a while since we've heard from the Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) but the group of high-speed cable cutters have been beavering away at their first unified 60GHz specification as promised.  The benefit of the standard - which the alliance is pushing for adoption as the next stage in WiFi - is up to 7Gbps theoretical speeds, ten times that of existing WiFi 802.11n, while preserving backward compatibility with previous 802.11 specifications.
