Neonode to launch Smartphone with Wi-Fi
Swedish company Neonode is introducing Internet via wireless LAN (WLAN), into their mobiles. The company has been working with Philips Semiconductors to develop a mobile with low power consumption and WLAN support. The launch of the new Neonode mobile is planned for the second half of 2005.

With Neonode's WLAN mobile users will be able to call, surf the Internet, chat using MSN Messenger or other programs, download files and transfer data faster and less expensive than has been possible with a mobile up to now. When out of range of a WLAN Access Point then it will use GSM/GPRS for data connections, as an ordinary mobile.

The company expects its WLAN mobile will allow to bring VoIP (voice over IP) Internet telephony into the mobile environment.

The N1 line of smartphones is based on Windows CE .Net, instead of the more common Windows Mobile for Smartphone platform, both from Microsoft.

The technology also makes it possible to, significantly faster data transfer. The transfer speed will initially be up to 11 Mbit per second, which is much faster than today’s 3G standards and about 11 times faster than Bluetooth. The company expects to release an updated version sometime in the future with an increased speed of up to 100 Mbit per second.
