Motorola A910 Wi-Fi Handset Launches on BT's Fusion Service

Motorola A910 Packs Next Generation Linux-Java OS, Bluetooth Wireless Technology and J2ME Performance

Motorola has announced another step forward in delivering their vision of Seamless Mobility with the launch of the Motorola A910 on BT's Fusion service. The dual mode Wi-Fi/UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) handset is the latest in Motorola's portfolio of fixed-mobile convergence devices enabling seamless access to both Broadband and GSM networks.

BT Fusion works just like a normal mobile phone when you are out and about, automatically switching to UK landline rates whenever you're calling UK landline numbers from home. It offers the convenience and features of a mobile phone, however, when you're at home it recognizes where you are and using wireless technology, automatically links with the BT Hub, to route calls over a BT Broadband connection.

With the launch of the Motorola A910 on BT's Fusion service, users will be able to seamlessly connect between mobile and landline networks using Wi-Fi instead of the existing Bluetooth wireless technology. Users can make fixed rate calls away from the home or office by being able to seamlessly connect to BT's award winning public Wi-Fi access network - BT Openzone.

The service will deliver a major cost advantage to businesses and consumers allowing them to enjoy bandwidth - hungry services such as music and video when in a Wi-Fi enabled area. The Motorola A910 is able to serve as the main means of communication, providing a truly integrated handset experience. Sophisticated voice features and Wi-Fi connectivity means that there is no need to dial, users can simply speak commands that will prompt the handset to engage in a call.

The Motorola A910 packs next generation Linux-Java operating system, Bluetooth wireless technology, J2ME performance, and enhanced text prediction features for a simplified yet powerful mobile experience. "The Motorola A910 is the epitome of true convergence, seamlessly linking people, information and devices while on the move. Users can exploit the capabilities of broadband to the mobile device while retaining the convenience of global GSM coverage," said Greg Estell, VP and general manager, Motorola Devices Europe. "This is the latest evolution of Motorola's vision of Seamless Mobility and truly reinforces Motorola's relationship with BT."

Steve Andrews, BT Group's Chief of Mobility & Convergence, added: "Being able to use a Wi-Fi handset really brings BT's vision for truly converged communications a step closer. That is to create a service which allows customers to always be 'best connected' regardless of technology and access network to meet their voice and data needs wherever they are."

The Motorola A910 uses Freescale Semiconductor's baseband and enhanced mini-USB solution, and will be available on BT's Fusion service from Q3 2006

Motorola is showcasing its products and innovations at Booth A07, Hall 8, at the 3GSM World Congress, Barcelona.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
