Smartphone on a Chip?

Maybe sooner than you think!

TI WiLink 7.0 – WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and an FM transmitter on a chip the size of a fingernail
See that little chip? It’s called a TI WiLink 7.0 and it’s going to end up in your mobile phone soon, to supply GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and an FM transmitter functionality to your handset. It’s the first single chip offering this huge amount of connectivity, but it’s definitely not going to be the last.

Question. How long till a chip that size contains everything you need to make a top spec smartphone? And what will that mean for our mobile phone size and feature set? Astonishing stuff. Really.
