The next wave of mobile handsets will provide a continuity of user experience that was previously not possible.  Whether at work, in the automobile or at home, the ability to provide a seamless transition across heterogeneous networks will enable a new level of consumer experience and efficiency.  In order to provide this capability mobile device architectures and related infrastructure will become more complex.  This complexity will create opportunities for component suppliers to innovate new solutions that will lower costs and size while improving performance for seamless mobility devices similar to that found in the evolution of UMTS devices. 

Keywords:  Seamless Mobility, heterogeneous communications, GSM, UMTS, WLAN, WiFi, WiMAX
