Motorola Mobility HMC3260 Meets Chinese Market Demand with Added Wi-Fi for Flexibility in the Home

Motorola Mobility has now added Wi-Fi to its HMC3260 “Cloud Broadband” device, which is a major step for the company’s Home business in the country of China.

The HMC3260 Cloud Broadband device will now have Wi-Fi capabilities for users through Chinese operator WASU, but the offerings will become available across the Chinese market soon enough.

“We know that Chinese consumers are the most prolific users of multi-screen services and this device becomes a mobile access point for entertainment and connectivity throughout the home,” explained Motorola’s president and regional general manager for the Home Division in the Asia Pacific, Kevin Keefe. “We’ve seen increasing interest in this device from a number of other companies and expect the HMC3260 to be available to more Chinese customers soon.”

Motorola recently came out with their annual Media Engagement Barometer, which they made available at the CCBN 2013 in Beijing, showing the market shift in China for more content and high-quality multi-screen services.

WASU Digital Group can meet this growing consumer demand using the HMC3260 Android-enabled cloud computing device, but now with updated Wi-Fi capabilities. WASU was the first company to choose this Motorola solution, giving the service provider more options than its competitors for cloud-based entertainment services even before the Wi-Fi connection was made available.

“WASU’s customers already enjoy the fast broadband connection, and wide range of cloud-based services that the Motorola HMC3260 brings. By adding Wi-Fi it can become a true companion screen,” said Keefe.

The HMC3260 is Android-powered, with an 18.5-inch LED touchscreen display and a range of capabilities that include digital TV, movies, games, Web browsing, apps and other DOCSIS-base services, all on demand.

A wireless connection can be accessed on the Motorola HMC3260 via existing Wi-Fi broadband networks, using either router-connected DOCSIS or a Wi-Fi dongle. This allows users to travel anywhere in their home while still connected to Motorola’s HMC3260 wirelessly, and removes the need for Ethernet cables entirely. The flexibility offered to Chinese consumers with these updates is exactly what the Asia Pacific market is looking for, and has now become for users a much-needed and useful companion screen service.
