[TechXNY expo currently underway in New York sees lots of interest being generated in wireless hot spots by companies like Toshiba, HP, Intel and IBM.]

by John G. Spooner, New York -- "At this week's TechXNY expo here, IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard and Toshiba have all announced new initiatives, ranging from helping small businesses build wireless office networks to creating free wireless Internet access for the public.

IBM will cater a new wireless computer bundle to small businesses, the company said Tuesday. Meanwhile, Intel has set up here a new wireless "hot spot," a place where people can log on to the Internet via a wireless connection.

The companies join HP and Toshiba in their efforts to woo customers with new wireless computing capabilities. HP and Toshiba announced their initiatives separately this week at the expo.

Collectively, these plans could result in a person's ability to move from the office to a coffee shop to a park and back while maintaining an almost constant wireless link to the Internet and to e-mail via the 802.11b standard. That standard uses a radio frequency that lets computers share data at distances of several hundred feet from an access point that provides a link between wireless and wired computer networks
