Our sister-site MobileCrunch has an exclusive on a new flexible baseband radio coming from the folks at Sandbridge Technologies. The software-defined radio, or SDR, would be a viable replacement for the radios found in mobile handsets allowing you to switch amongst different standards by changing the radio’s software. Or at least that’s how my tiny mind has processed the information. Truly production-ready devices are believed to be far off though, so this may be a breakthrough that eventually benefits us all. Oliver’s breakdown of it on MobileCrunch has roweled me into learning more though, and you should too–then explain it to me.
