In my post on September 22nd, I mentioned that the carriers in this country are becoming increasingly motivated and interested in inspiring whole new ways to innovate and bring new wireless devices to market, preferably on their networks.
If you combine their motivations with our mission, wonderful things start to happen.
As evidence of that, I am excited to announce today that we’ve partnered with AT&T to help developers seamlessly integrate 3G GSM wireless connectivity into whatever electronic device they can dream up with the BUG platform. AT&T certified/network-ready wireless modules will become part of our integrated collection of BUGmodules. This means the BUG-based device you put together can run, certified, on the AT&T network immediately – no further testing required.
So – More good news, if you’re looking to create something that uses AT&T’s network – the open source hardware modules are now an option.
