ST-Ericsson and its China subsidiary T3G have strengthened their strategic partnership with Samsung Mobile by providing the first TD-HSDPA and Edge platform for Samsung's high-end devices, "Emerald (GC-I6320C)", which was recently launched. It will enable China subscribers to enjoy high-speed mobile Internet on their multimedia phones.

"This commercial launch by Samsung is a significant step in the development of TD-SCDMA-based data services in China," said Alain Dutheil, president and CEO of ST-Ericsson. "Our strategic partnership with Samsung will allow consumers to enjoy a unique broadband experience through their mobile handsets, enabling them to take full advantage of China's mobile broadband future.

ST-Ericsson's TD-HSDPA/Edge dual-mode, dual-band device is capable of supporting downlink speeds of up to 2.8Mbit/s. The platforms' flexible dual-mode design enables seamless automatic handover between Edge and TD-HSDPA networks, making the most efficient use of network resources whenever possible. This allows consumers to use the same mobile device to take advantage of widespread Edge coverage for high-quality voice throughout China, and also enjoy fast Internet browsing, streaming video, GPS-based positioning services, and access to social networks over TD-HSDPA networks when in range.

The T7210 solution supports TD-SCDMA dual-band 2010MHz to 2025MHz/1880MHz to 1920MHz frequencies, and has successfully completed handovers of voice and high speed data services in order to operate optimally in China dual-band network environments.
