Helena Ronner writes "Alereon, Inc., the ultrawideband (UWB) technology leader for mobile WiMedia and solutions based on Certified Wireless USB, and Stonestreet One, Inc., a leading wireless software company focused on complete solutions for local and personal area networks including WiMedia-based UWB, today announced a new wireless USB solution for Microsoft Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE platforms including PDA devices and cellular phones. Alereon and Stonestreet One are demonstrating this platform at WinHEC 2007 in Los Angeles.

The mobile phone solution consists of the Alereon AL4000 Certified Wireless USB chipset, the only native device solution currently certified for Wireless USB solutions by the USB-IF, powered by Stonestreet One's UltraSuite(TM) for Windows Mobile software and device drivers. Consumer and mobile electronics OEM devices which support compact flash (CF) and SDIO interfaces using Windows Mobile can now incorporate this advanced high speed wireless technology and connect with both legacy wired USB and Certified Wireless USB equipment and platforms, as specified by the USB Implementers Forum. The demonstration includes a Samsung i730 cellular phone with an embedded Certified Wireless USB chipset from Alereon running UltraSuite(TM) and WiCenter(TM) for Windows Mobile software, connected to a laptop running the Stonestreet UltraSuite(TM) and WiCenter(TM) PC software for Microsoft Windows.

Alereon and Stonestreet One are demonstrating their UWB solutions including this new capability at the USB-IF solutions showcase at the WinHEC show in Los Angeles, May 14-16, 2007."
