Japan’s NEC Corporation has selected Ericsson Mobile Platforms for use in the launch of its next generation global WCDMA/GPRS handsets. The first products to be made available within the first half of FY2005 (April 2005 – September 2005), will be based on the Ericsson U100 platform. NEC feels that with the addition of Ericsson Mobile Platforms to its portfolio, NEC will be ready to offer a wider range of 3G mobile terminals to meet the various demands of 3G mobile operators and end users.
Ericsson claims that its U100 platform has been launched in an estimated 30 per cent of the world’s WCDMA products and has been selected by several handset providers for its stability, size, power consumption and feature set. Via: DigitalMediaAsia.com
