Samsung Electronics and IXI Mobile, Inc. today announced that Samsung has incorporated Personal Mobile Gateway (PMG) technology into a new breed of Samsung wireless phones and peripheral devices by licensing IXI software. Samsung will exhibit a PMG Phone as well as other designed-for-PMG products at CeBIT in Hall 26, Booth 68. The Samsung SGH-X410, the world’s first PMG Phone, is tri-band GSM/GPRS with 65K colors, Bluetooth and 40 polyphonic ring tones.
“Samsung, as a mobile communications trend-setter, offers a wide variety of products designed to be at the center of peoples’ lives both in their homes and when they are mobile,” said Amit Haller, President and CEO of IXI Mobile. “As the inventor and pioneer of the PMG, we are very pleased to be working with Samsung to enable the introduction of new and innovative wireless products that greatly enhance the users’ mobile experience.”
The PMG is the bridge between the mobile and the Personal Area Networks (PAN), combining cellular and short distance wireless with micro-router and micro-server functionalities. It is the point of connection between the wireless network and the new category of affordable and best-of-breed mobile devices. The PMG enables a new set of innovative, optimized Sleek Devices (e.g. watches, pens, phones, messaging terminals, gaming devices, cameras) that deliver a superior experience, while still focused on fashion and budget.
