Press release, September 24; Michael McManus, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 24 September 2008]

Motorola has unveiled its first WiMAX USB adaptor, the USBw 100. This thumb-drive-sized device is available in three versions to connect to WiMAX networks in each of the three bands approved for use around the world - 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz.

The Motorola USBw 100 plugs directly into laptop computers to provide mobile wireless broadband connectivity, both indoors and out. It is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year.

Motorola's wi4 WiMAX USB adaptor has been designed with multiple antenna technology to provide reliable, high-speed connectivity in the various and unpredictable environments where users expect service, especially indoor home, business and coffee shop environments, as well as on-the-go in a mobile world. The USBw 100 delivers increased range and higher throughput when compared with single-antenna solutions. When used with Motorola's dual antenna Diversity Access Point (DAP) /Wireless Access Point (WAP) 400 Series, both uplink and downlink performance are significantly enhanced.

The device plugs into a USB port, seamlessly connecting the laptop computer to a WiMAX broadband network for reliable, easy, high-speed connection for e-mail, web surfing, video and audio streaming, GPS services, Internet phone calls and other uses.

On October 8, Sprint is expected to launch its Xohm WiMAX service in Baltimore, making it the first official WiMAX service available in the US.
