1. A wireless device comprising:
first and second antennas;
first and second transceivers; and
switches to configure the first and second transceivers for non-contiguous frequency operation in a first state, and to configure the first and second transceivers for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) operation in a second state, wherein:
in the first state, the switches are to couple each of the first and second transceivers to the first antenna and to configure the first and second transceivers for different frequencies of operation; and
in the second state, the switches are to couple the first and second transceivers to the first and second antennas, respectively, and to configure the first and second transceivers for the same frequency of operation.
