Motorola Announces Dual-Mode Wi-Fi/GSM Mobile Phone
Posted on 14-Feb-2006 12:04. | Tags Filed under: News.



Motorola is launching 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 an 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 will be available on BT's Fusion service from Q3 2006.
