Broadcom announced the production of a chip with either CDMA or GSM and a WiFi (802.11) chip on. Does anyone know of cellphone manufacturers that have announced using the new chipsets?

I dont know of any currently, but man would that put bluetooth out of business. 11mbps vs 1mbps, and 300ft operability vs 30ft? The only thing I can think of that might be to bluetooths advantage is that it uses less power to run. My laptop wont run much longer than an hour without the ac when im using wi-fi. I wonder if it would hurt the 802.11x standard that bluetooth is more well known in the wireless industry (remember beta?). Another thing, would this be the 802.11b running at 11mbps, or the 802.11g running at 50mbps.
