Ericsson Collaborates with Intel on HSPA for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs)

Ericsson is collaborating with Intel to bring HSPA mobile data solutions to Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs). Specifically, the Ericsson HSPA data solution is targeted at Intel's Moorestown platform and is scheduled for release in the 2009/10 timeframe. Based on the Intel Atom processor, Moorestown is Intel's next-generation MID platform which will include HSPA as one of its wireless technologies.

Ericsson said it is optimizing its module for Intel's next-generation Moorestown platform and Moblin-based Linux operating systems. The module will work on both WCDMA/HSPA and GSM/EDGE networks worldwide.

Johan Wibergh, Senior Vice President and head of Business Unit Networks at Ericsson, said: "Ericsson continues to create one Internet and one experience for the consumer, regardless of location or device, fixed or wireless. We see great potential in embedding mobile broadband in MIDs, creating new markets in the industry."
