Broadcom has also placed a bet on the emergence of tablet systems, with the introductions of its Persona Internet protocol (IP) communications platform for multimedia connected consumer devices. The Persona platform runs Broadcomï¿¼s MediaxChange Linux based software, which supports voice, video and data applications. The product is designed to be integrated into products from hardware suppliers rather than a device sold directly to small and medium businesses. The announcement is noteworthy because Broadcom is a leading supplier of silicon to many of the industryï¿¼s top companies. Its interest in tablet computing could foreshadow the entry of a number of new suppliers (Dell is another vendor reportedly working on a new tablet system) vying to provide customers with another mobile computing option.
