Cambridge, UK, September 16, 2009 --- Antenova Ltd, the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced its antennas and M10214 GPS RADIONOVA® RF Antenna Modules have been selected by Quantum, a leading mobile TV industry player. Antenova’s Wi-Fi and HSDPA antennas along with the M10214 GPS RF Antenna Modules provide Quantum’s iconic handheld multimedia devices with always-on, anywhere and anytime connectivity.
“Antenova’s high performing embedded antennas and GPS RF antenna modules were the ideal choice for our VideoTouch range of stylish personal media players, which are marketed worldwide by Motorola under its product name DH02,” stated Stefano Martini, CEO of Quantum. “The M10214 GPS RF antenna module provides accurate and reliable performance, regardless of the device orientation, which is a huge advantage for our dual-orientation VideoTouch devices that can switch between landscape and portrait orientations depending on the application. And the small size, low profile and ground plane independence of the M10214 enabled our design team to quickly and easily add GPS functionality without affecting the existing sleek form factor.”

Antenova’s GPS RADIONOVA RF antenna modules provide fast and accurate location data for the real time navigation application. And in models with Antenova’s custom HSDPA antennas, VideoTouch users can fully enjoy the location based TV and interactive services available from their mobile network providers.”
