The article claims that multiple systems operators have an eye on recent development of wireless handsets with dual cellular and Wi-Fi capabilities. Cellular telephone service firms Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Motorola Inc. have been working for some time on just such a technology. TI has developed a chip that melds a Wi-Fi radio with a cellular radio based on the GSM scheme. For the cable customer, the attraction would be not only the addition of cellular phone service, but also the possibility of a unified voice service.
