Ericsson announced it is collaborating with Intel Corp. to bring HSPA mobile data solutions to mobile Internet devices (MIDs), extending its 3G mobile broadband technology from notebooks to a range of pocketable devices.

The Ericsson HSPA data solution is targeted at Intel's Moorestown platform and is scheduled for release in the 2009/10 timeframe. Based on the Intel Atom processor, Moorestown is Intel's next-generation MID platform which will include HSPA as one of its wireless technologies.

MIDs can deliver a truly mobile internet experience, and are expected to facilitate a range of uses including entertainment and media, connected GPS navigation, online gaming, social networking, data communication, and productivity. With ubiquitous broadband connectivity, mobile users will be able to enjoy these experiences any time, anywhere.

Johan Wibergh, senior VP and head of business unit networks at Ericsson, said, "Ericsson continues to create one Internet and one experience for the consumer, regardless of location or device, fixed or wireless. We see great potential in embedding mobile broadband in MIDs, creating new markets in the industry. We are very excited to work with Intel to bring together the telecom and computing industries and extend the mobile broadband ecosystem."

"The Internet, with all of its richness, versatility and personalization, will forever change how we think about mobile computing," said Anand Chandrasekher, Intel senior VP and general manager for the company's ultra mobility group. "The high performance, low power and compatibility of Intel architecture, coupled with Ericsson's 3G mobile technologies, represents one of the ways to accelerate the global adoption of a new breed of Mobile Internet Devices that provide people with more powerful, always connected Internet-based experiences."
