Samsung announced a new system-on-a-chip that will allow wireless USB to be added to devices such as mobile phones. This form of short-distance wireless transfer technology would permit users to place a phone on or near a target device, connect the two and transmit data wirelessly. Samsung says its wireless USB technology can reach up to 480Mbps, which would allow it to transfer a 700MB movie between devices in two minutes. The new SoC also combines an SD card, an MMC, a NAND flash memory, and a high-speed USB 2.0 OTG (On-The-Go) interface without the need for more circuitry. The system uses 128-bit AES encryption to protect data from being hacked during transfer. The system uses little power, making it ideal for mobile devices. The chips are already sampling and will be in full production in the second quarter of 2009.

Wow 700mb transfer in 2 minutes. . .

We still need laptops with built-in wireless USB. I wonder if anyone will ever come out with wireless usb earpieces, for better range and clearity than what bt provides.
Sounds like it probably won't have better range but I would imagine it would have better clarity. Don't know tho

what's the need for this?
It is way, way faster than bt!!!
The same can be said for alot of things using your philosphy. What's the need for CPU's, OS's, diff. phone companies or carriers?

There's no NEED for it....it's competition.
