Spreadtrum Communications Inc. and Shanghai Raho Technology Co. Ltd jointly unveiled what it claims to be the world's first TD-SCDMA/GSM dual mode wireless communication module supporting video phone function. The wireless fixed-line video phone product based on Spreadtrum's TD-SCDMA/GSM dual mode chip solution is an extension of applied TD-SCDMA technology.

The TM610 TD-SCDMA/GSM dual mode wireless communication module is designed for use in the wireless fixed-line video phone. With support for TD-SCDMA/GSM dual mode, the module enables switching automatically and seamlessly between GSM and TD-SCDMA. In addition, it supports applications such as weather forecast, mobile paper, dynamic content delivery , MP3 background music and typical 3G functions such as video phone, and high-speed, large-capacity data downloading.

The TM610 deploys Spreadtrum's SC8800 series TD-SCDMA dual mode baseband chipsets, which include the same level of high integration as previous Spreadtrum baseband chipsets. The module features 3G typical functions such as high-speed transmission, video phone, data applications, voice calls, SMS and MMS.

"We believe that Rahotech's TD-SCDMA/GSM dual mode wireless communication module based on Spreadtrum's SC8800 series baseband chipsets sets a new product model for the commercialization and industrialization of the TD-SCDMA technology, and pushes the popularization of TD-SCDMA products," said Michael Zhang, president of Rahotech. "Rahotech would like to maintain close and long- term cooperation with Spreadtrum on TD-SCDMA technology, while delivering cost-effective one-stop total solutions, time-to-market and efficiency advantages to customers."

Ping Wu, chairman and CEO of Spreadtrum, said, "As the commercialization of TD-SCDMA progresses, Spreadtrum will focus on the personal and corporate customers market while still meeting the basic demands for quality voice communication via mobile phones. We believe that this cooperation not only provides personal and corporate users with a wireless fixed-line video phone product that supports richer applications, but also creates a new cooperation to further develop the TD-SCDMA business."
