Motorola licenses WiMax chip set designs

Wireless apps maker Enfora is first licensee

Motorola announced Monday that it is licensing its reference design for mobile WiMax radio chip sets, and that Enfora is its first licensee.

The reference design, known as the WTM1000 (for WiMax Terminal Modem), is designed to deliver ultra-high-speed functionality through thin devices, Motorola said in a statement. Motorola will be offering intellectual property licenses.

The program is designed to accelerate the expansion of WiMax into a wider consumer base, Motorola said.

"We hope to foster the development of great new mobile Wimax devices and applications across the industry," said Gary Koerper, vice president of platform planning and systems architecture at Motorola.

Enfora, which is based in Dallas, supplies wireless network systems that support location-based monitoring and asset-management applications. The WTM1000 will be used in Enfora's eWide wireless networking systems.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
