LXer: One software radio to rule them all

Published at LXer:

Could one radio be all you ever need for data, cellular calls, wifi and more? Software defined radio holds that promise. Andrew Back looks at how free software is one of the enablers in helping to put the technology into the hands of consumers

Sorry, but it's not a good idea. It may sound great, but the devil is in the details. You cannot make such a thing, and even if you do it will not be cheap and it will not do everything well, certainly not as well as specifically designed hardware. What if all you want is a wifi card, why get and pay for all the other functionality when you don't need it ?
