Motorola to Supply Wi-Fi/UMA Handset for BT's Fusion Service

Motorola will supply a dual mode Wi-Fi/UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) handset for the launch of BT's Fusion service. 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.

The Motorola A910 will be available on BT's Fusion service from Q3 2006.

The Motorola A910 also offers the ability to play MP3 music, create a personalized soundtrack that runs simultaneously with a slide show of photos taken on the 1.3 Megapixel embedded camera with lumi- LED Flash. It features a Linux-Java operating system, Bluetooth wireless technology, J2ME performance, and enhanced text prediction features for a simplified yet powerful mobile experience.

The Motorola A910 uses Freescale Semiconductor's baseband and enhanced mini-USB solution.
