"When people build receivers, they may not pay enough attention to the radio frequency environment in which they will be operating," says Brian Markwalter, senior vice president of research and standards at the Consumer Electronics Association. Markwalter says that this should change.
Models for the U.S. market don't use the technology yet, but it seems likely they will in the near future, says Markwalter, because phones there are required to handle a greater number of distinct radio-frequency bands every year.
In effect, you could build a 'universal device,' but we aren't there yet," Markwalter says.
The real driver for adoption will likely be consumer demand for devices that perform better, Markwalter says.
