Motorola Inc. is teaming with chipmaker Texas Instruments Inc. to develop its first mobile WiMax handsets, to launch in 2008.

TI already works with Motorola developing chipsets for 3G devices. The firms say that the extension of this deal will focus on "802.16e mobile WiMAX functionality supporting voice, video and data for low-power mobile applications." TI is readying WiMax chipsets for "mobile devices that Motorola plans to launch during 2008."
