Motorola’s cloud broadband device goes wireless

Infotech Lead Asia: Motorola Mobility’s Home has added Wi-Fi capability to its HMC3260 “Cloud Broadband” device, currently available from Chinese telecom operator WASU, and soon to be available more widely across China.

Wireless connectivity enables the HMC3260 users to play their games, message their friends and watch HD video over Wi-Fi, without necessarily being near the main living room screen.

Motorola’s annual Media Engagement Barometer says China is a content hungry market with mature multi-screen behaviors. This new development helps service providers like WASU to meet the growing demand amongst Chinese consumers for multi-screen services.

WASU Digital is the first company to choose Motorola Mobility’s HMC3260 Android enabled cloud computing device to provide cloud-based entertainment services to its customers.

Powered by Android, it features an 18.5-inch LED touchscreen display to provide easy access to digital TV, movies, games, web browsing, apps and other DOCSIS-based services on demand.

The HMC3260 is the first Android-powered home broadband device which provides customers with a truly converged broadband and TV experience with an intuitive interface.

The Motorola HMC3260 also provides Internet access through an existing Wi-Fi broadband network; either via DOCSIS or through the use of a Wi-Fi dongle. Eliminating the need for an Ethernet cable gives users of Motorola’s HMC3260 mobility, making it a flexible, portable solution for families with differing viewing preferences.
