Sales of Wi-Fi-enabled devices increased by 64 percent in 2005 and will exceed 120 million units before the end of the year, according to a study released Tuesday by In-Stat and the Wi-Fi Alliance trade group.

“This is a significant milestone for such a young technology," Gemma Tedesco, an In-Stat senior analyst, said in a statement. The Alliance, a trade organization of wireless LAN vendors, said that about 2200 products have received certification as being Wi-Fi compliant since 2000.

Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the Alliance, noted that 90 percent of notebooks computers sold this year are equipped with Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi is a trade name that denotes compliance with the 802.11 specifications for wireless LAN equipment. The current standard is 802.11g and the IEEE is working on the next-generation standard, 802.11n.
