Very interesting to read about the historic adoption of Bluetooth and Wifi. Impressive to hear about TI's four radio solution. I wonder if the chip is expensive? however, I bet using this single chip has a definitive advantage over using a chip for each of the radios.
so it was... GPS, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and FM? nice.
Will we ever see Baseband integration or is that too much to ask for?

Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
