Google’s quest for the 700MHz is so on

March 4, 2008
Well I guess the speculation is over…Google is moving forward with their bid for the 700MHz “C Block” in the US. What could this mean for us Canadians?…probably not much in the short term but long term I would guess this could come into play as the wireless space North of the border opens up.

TD_SCDMA: Tomorrow’s Dream

March 4, 2008
I know my way around GSM and CDMA technologies (well, lets be honest…I understand the differences) so I was curious when I heard that a third IEEE standard is emerging out of the Chinese markets…TD-SCDMA.

Here in Calgary we are lucky enough to have the largest producer of TD-SCDMA equipment, China’s ZTE, present to discuss what this technology could mean to North American based device manufactures and application developers. The session is going to be held Feb. 4th from 11-1 at NEWT. For more information contact Ann Given – ann.given@newt.trlabs.ca or 403-338-6377.

With China’s exploding wireless market you won’t want to miss this opportunity to get intimate with one of the area’s largest players!

The State of Wireless in Canada Sucks

March 4, 2008
Thomas Purves of WirelessNorth.ca did an Ignite presentation titled “The State of Wireless in Canada Sucks” earlier this week at DemoCampToronto17 and received a standing ovation. I heard similar discussions at the Wireless Connections 2007 event in Banff last year…http://www.techvibes.com/blog/the-state-of-wireless-in-canada-sucks/

DemoCamps are a great place to hear provocative discussions on problems like these…and hopefully innovative solutions to them. I hear DemoCampCalgary 7 is taking place here in Calgary next week. (March 11th)
