Probably the closest you get to a wireless thinclient is Thinstation[1]. 

Thinstation puts a very small (6-12MB) linux installation on your 
harddrive, or you can have it boot from a cdrom, it then connects to 
your ltsp-server either via NXclient, or X(never tried this). 
(Ecotic things such as rdesktop, ica is also possible)

I have some laptops functioning as wireless thinclients using 
Thinstation. They connect using NXclient and wireless cards that 
support wpa (dlink atheros based ones).

I have for fun included the network traffic from the accesspoint that 15 
such wireless nxclients generates under realistic use; gcompris, 
openoffice, Internet, in use the whole day by pupils.
