Samsung acquired Nanoradio

Samsung has bought Nanoradio, a Swedish company, which is outstanding in developing and designing energy efficient chips for Wi-Fi.

One of the hottest new phones on the market right now is the Samsung Galaxy Note, a behemoth Android-based smart phone. Regarding this phone, one of the remarkable parts is its battery life. Apparently, battery usage is a quite important factor when people are considering buying smart phones, and it is a significant drain on user satisfaction as well. Samsung has noticed this, of course. After working on the life-time of battery, it launched Samsung Galaxy Note, which says Samsung Galaxy Note’s battery life can be easily last as long as an iPad. 


In order to have more improvements on the battery life, Samsung bought Nanoradio last Friday. Nanoradio is based in Sweden and has around 60 employees. It makes low-power wireless LAN chipsets for smart phones, tablets, mobile gaming terminals, portable multimedia players, digital cameras and e-readers. Samsung’s acquisition can result in longer battery life on Samsung’s future smart phones and tablets.

So far, the terms of the deal or the exact plan from both sides have not been outlined. The reason behind this acquisition is not clear either. However, many people are positive about this acquisition right now, because more mobile operators and enterprises are interested in Wi-Fi. According to Dell ‘Oro Group, the revenues of wireless LAN has grown 18% in Q1 compared with the same period of last year. Operators are scrambling to deploy Wi-Fi satisfy mobile users. 

Looking forward to the updated news :)
