NextWave, Dmedia Team on Mobile WiMAX Device

By Sue Marek

NextWave Wireless has joined forces with Taiwan manufacturer Dmedia to produce a mobile WiMAX device that will make its debut in the first half of 2009.

Dmedia is a GPS OEM/ODM firm that owns dmobile, a mobile phone manufacturer. NextWave says that the two firms will make a device that will use NextWave's WiMAX chipset to deliver robust features such as NextWave's MXtv mobile broadcast service, streaming video, video conferencing and VOIP.

This news follows NextWave's announcement at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last February that the company had collaborated with Finish firm Elektrobit on a reference design based upon NextWave's WiMAX chipset. Together, the two firms had hoped that the design would help bring WiMAX handset reference designs to market quicker. [FierceBroadbandWireless]
