Following last week’s announcement that a number of companies in the space were working on so-called Super 3G, both Samsung and LG spoke up against the group, suggesting it was really an attempt by NTT DoCoMo to do an end run around efforts to settle on a 4G standard. Ed’s Note: Interesting that Samsung’s comment ignored Vodafone which was also one of the 26 companies on this group announcement.
However, this morning a blurb (paid subscription required) appeared at Telecoms Korea saying that the Korean government says Samsung and LG are a part of the Super 3G group, saying: “Korean cell phone makers such as Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics also joined the Super 3G project led by NTT DoCoMo. The report came after both the Korean companies had affirmed a few days ago they considered Super 3G as just another Docomo-led event and did not take it seriously.” Full story Here.
