Wi-Fi in a phone? Sure, we’re waiting for Bluetooth still – but how about a bit of wi-fi on your mobile? Why?
Imagine – high-bandwidth video streaming, fast email send/receive with large attachments – all while you’re at the airport / motorway services etc..
Intel president Paul Otellini is backing it. He states that mobile providers have had a change of thinking recently… “They have moved from saying, ‘heck no,’ to seriously considering it.” .. he said… “I was in the lobby of this conference center today making a voice over IP call over Wi-Fi,” said Otellini. “This is happening a whole lot faster than most people thought.”
