WASU Digital Group, one of China’s leading cable and telecommunications service providers, has chosen Motorola Mobility’s HMC3260 Android-powered cloud computing device to provide a range of innovative cloud-based entertainment services to its customers.
Launched today in Beijing, the Motorola HMC3260 cloud computer uses an Android-powered, 18.5-inch LED touchscreen display to provide consumers easy access to digital TV, movies, games, web browsing, apps and other DOCSIS*-based services on demand. Motorola Mobility’s first Android-powered home broadband device, the HMC3260 provides customers with a truly converged broadband and TV experience with a unique and intuitive interface.
Building on its experience in the broadband communications and mobility industries, Motorola is developing a new family of Android-powered, highly innovative devices for the broadband market. The Motorola HMC3260 – dubbed Cloud Broadband by WASU – is specially designed for service providers who deliver a variety of video, interactive broadcast, and Over-The-Top (OTT) services over hybrid fiber coax networks.
"The Motorola HMC3260 not only provides subscribers with a fast broadband connection, it also enables them to enjoy a range of cloud-based services provided by WASU, including games, high-definition television and movies, web browsing and more," said Kevin Keefe, Vice President & regional general manager of Motorola‘s Home Division, Asia.

It is an important step toward our vision of a smart, simple, connected home."
The Cloud Broadband device enables WASU’s customers to access to a host of cloud entertainment services such as an extensive library of on-demand high-definition media, games, applications and storage space. WASU chose Motorola’s ‘all-in-one’ device for its ability to deliver innovative and compelling, combined entertainment and connectivity services. Its sleek, simple design and stunning 18.5" LED touch-screen offers WASU’s customers an attractive way to consume high-definition media in the home whilst staying connected with friends and family via broadband.
