It does say in the article that the HTC phone uses a WiLink chip. I'm betting the newer smartphones from this company have ANT+ functionality built-in, but that it's not yet been "activated" for the normal consumer.

Wow, took some digging but it sounds like the HTC legend uses the Texas Instruments’ WiLink chip which supports Ant+. It makes you wonder what other protocols we can get access to. Don't you love these like surprises? Things like this can give protocols like Ant a little jump start.

Is there a dedicated wireless chip inside HTC Legend which communicates with ANT+ device!! I am surprised. Never knew this! Mobile healthcare is a high growth area for semiconductors and I dont think the market forces will allow a proprietary technology like ANT+ wireless to rule. People already learned from Qualcomm & Rambus. IMO ANT+ should dump the proprietary wireless & switch to Bluetooth LE, if they intend to succeed in this market :)

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
