The semiconductor firm said its converged cellular/802.11g handset will be sold by a major operator in the U.S. soon: The handset relies in part on a partnership with Kineto (making the backend integration part for carriers) and networking giant Alcatel. This allows an end-to-end solution that’s technically coordinated for an operator to buy into. My guess? Cingular. They’ve made noises for a year about converged Wi-Fi/cell access and have extensive Wi-Fi operations as well as through parent AT&T (formerly SBC) a massive number of DSL customers to whom they have sold Wi-Fi gateways.
