Because Wi-Fi networks can also ferry voice calls, these networks could be used in the future to improve cell phone reception in buildings, where cellular coverage is traditionally poor. Wi-Fi could also be used as a way for carriers, for now, to meet the hype of so-called 3G, or third-generation, wireless Web networks, an area they've begun building and selling services on. The carriers are promising a nationwide wireless network capable of speeds that make it easy to download music on a cell phone, among other features.
Downloading anything of any size to a cell phone or PDA (personal digital assistant) is a real task, That's where Wi-Fi comes in, classic case with glass screen protector for apple iphone 5/5s and se - rose gold It could be used to do the "heavy lifting," Cahners In-Stat analyst Allen Nogee said, For instance, a cell phone able to access a Wi-Fi network could use Wi-Fi to download a huge document to a personal computer, which has more computing power than a cell phone, for example, "There is some very real potential to offloading some of the voice calls onto Wi-Fi," said Keith Waryas, a wireless analyst with IDC..
Qualcomm is considered one of the bigger pieces of the Wi-Fi and cellular hybrid puzzle. The San Diego-based company says it controls all the necessary patents for CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access), a technology at the heart of about 20 percent of the world's wireless phones and phone networks. The makers of cell phones using GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), an open standard in about 70 percent of the world's phones, have already created some hybrid products. BT, a carrier in the U.K., has begun offering a hybrid phone and wireless service. In the United States, AT&T Wireless is said to be part of "Project Rainbow," an Intel-led initiative to create a nationwide wireless Wi-Fi network.

Other applications are for entertainment, such as Sea Wars, a single or multiplayer game where the user is in charge of a fleet of battle ships. Ericsson is also shipping MMS Composer, which lets users generate their own multimedia messages. ZDNet UK's Graeme Wearden reported from London.?. With a set of third-generation applications, the Swedish telecom-equipment maker hopes to persuade people to catch the next wave in wireless services. The programs, which Ericsson and independent developers created, include business applications, multiplayer games and Web browsing software.
