Personal Mobile Gateway technology (PMG®) combines cellular (e.g. GSM/GPRS, CDMA, etc.) and short distance wireless (e.g. Bluetooth or other technologies like WiFi), 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 for consumers (PMG Companions). The PMG can be a stand-alone device the size of a small mint box, or integrated into a cellular phone.
The PMG enables a whole new set of innovative, optimized PMG Companion devices (e.g. watches, pens, phones, messaging terminals, gaming devices, cameras) that deliver a superior user experience, while still focused on fashion and budget. They cost less to manufacture, can be brought to market much faster than ordinary mobile phones or smartphones, and generate greater data usage. The PMG also seamlessly connects existing legacy terminals (e.g. PDAs, laptops) with no additional client software needed.
