Modem to juggle Wi-Fi, Bluetooth

Wireless equipment maker Intersil unveiled designs Monday for a modem that can simultaneously connect with a Wi-Fi wireless network and devices that use another wireless technology called Bluetooth. The modem, meant for mobile devices, is the latest combination modem card to debut in the last few months. Intersil said it's the first combination modem to incorporate Bluetooth, which recently got a boost when Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates announced plans to later this year sell keyboards and mice that use the technology.
