The SGH-P200 phone, the new Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) WLAN handset from Samsung Electronics, incorporates Royal Philips' Nexperia cellular system solution 6120.

According to the press release, Samsung is taking advantage of the early availability of the Philips Nexperia cellular system solution 6120 for UMA to take the lead in providing consumers with access to GPRS and EDGE mobile services on the same handsets using wireless technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

"Consumers are looking to fixed-mobile convergence to reduce phone bills and Samsung has invested huge R&D resources to meet consumer demand," said Kwangsuk Hyun, senior vice president, overseas alliance group, Samsung. "The Nexperia cellular system solution 6120 from Philips was chosen because of its power efficient design, improved coverage on wireless and cellular networks, enhanced quality of service running multiple applications and ease of use with minimal intervention."

The Nexperia cellular system solution 6120 uses the Philips BGW211, a low-power 802.11g WLAN system-in-package that integrates the baseband/MAC, radio, power amplifier and all necessary front-end components. With receiver sensitivity better than -89dBm and transmit power over 20dBm EIRP, improved RF propagation even within a building premises provides consumers with seamless coverage, said Philips.
