Samsung & Philips - RF4CE

With the RF4CE spec now available, expect to see product announcements coming thick & fast over the following months.

The first of these comes from Samsung, who have just announced they've received ZigBee certification:  http://www.eetasia.com/ART_8800584348_499488_NT_4949d7cf.HTM

Meanwhile, Philips have announced the first remote control solution using ZigBee RF4CE:  http://zigbee.org/imwp/idms/popups/pop_download.asp?contentID=16386

And if this article's prediction is correct, then vendors should start shipping devices by Christmas 2009, and top 160 million units by 2012:  http://www.planetanalog.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=216403050

We're really excited by the potential of this new wave of wireless consumer electronics, replacing infra-red technology that's been around for many years.
