NWC @ CES: Mobility And Media Built Into Devices

Originally Published on Mobile Pipeline

Among the myriad announcements at the the Consumer Electronics Show that started Thursday in Las Vegas were those in which new types of mobility and media capabilities are being built into mobile devices.
For instance, Toshiba announced it is shipping a 4GB version of its.85-inch hard-drive for storing media on mobile devices such as smartphones and MP3 players. It also announced it plans to offer the tiny hard drives at 10 GB capacity. Even as flash memory capacities increase, hard drive capacities are increasing.

Chipmaker Broadcom said it has created what it claims is the first chipset for mobile phones with both mobile video and Wi-Fi support. One of its competitors, SyChip, introduced what it claims is the thinnest Wi-Fi module for cell phones.

Hewlett-Packard unveiled its nc6140 laptop with built-in 3G EV-DO capabilities. HP is only the latest vendor that is building in 3G. Dell, among others, has also announced it will ship 3G laptops.
