1. A radio communication device, comprising:

  • a first transceiver configured to transmit and receive signals in accordance with a Cellular Wide Area radio communication technology;

    a second transceiver configured to transmit and receive signals in accordance with a Short Range radio communication technology or a Metropolitan Area System radio communication technology;

    a first processor configured to control the first transceiver, the first processor comprising a first interface and a second interface;

    a second processor configured to control the second transceiver, the second processor comprising a first interface and a second interface;

    a third processor configured to determine real-time transceiver control information signals via the first interface of the first processor and via the first interface of the second processor, and to determine non-real-time transceiver control information signals via the second interface of the first processor and via the second interface of the second processor,wherein the first interface of the first processor is directly communicatively coupled with the first interface of the second processor through a first connection, the first interfaces being configured to exchange the real-time transceiver control information signals with each other,wherein the second interface of the first processor is directly communicatively coupled with the second interface of the second processor through a second connection, the second interfaces being configured to exchange the non-real-time transceiver control information signals with each other, the second connection being a different a separate and distinct connection from the first connection, anda coexistence status change determiner configured to determine a status change of the coexistence of a Cellular Wide Area radio communication connection and a Short Range radio communication connection or a Metropolitan Area System radio communication connection, and to determine as to whether a change of operation of at least one of the first transceiver and the second transceiver is required based at least in part on the determined real-time transceiver control information signals and the determined non-real-time transceiver control information signals.
