Nokia and ST-Ericsson have established a long-term partnership in the area of TD-SCDMA technology and solutions. Nokia will use ST-Ericsson chipset platforms in its Symbian-based TD-SCDMA devices and solutions portfolio.

The partnership with ST-Ericsson will bring Nokia's involvement with the TD-SCDMA standard to the next level. The partnership will enhance both companies' position in China's mobile market and will create a robust user experience for China consumers.

Nokia has made firm commitments to TD-SCDMA development. In October, the company launched Nokia 6788, its first Symbian-based TD-SCDMA phone and announced the creation of a dedicated TD-SCDMA R&D team in Beijing.

ST-Ericsson, through its Chinese subsidiary T3G, has been fully dedicated to the creation of new TD-SCDMA technology and devices for more than six years.

"TD-SCDMA is a core part of our strategy to deliver the best mobile user experience to Chinese people," said Heikki Koivu, VP, TD-SCDMA, Nokia. "Based on Symbian, TD-SCDMA will be enriched by the mature Symbian ecosystem, its devices, services and solutions. At the same time, TD-SCDMA will offer Symbian ecosystem partners more opportunities in the future."

"The long-standing collaboration between the companies now extends into a new area," said Pascal Langlois, chief sales and marketing officer at ST-Ericsson. The partnership will accelerate the pace of TD-SCDMA development, shorten time to market, and boost the TD market."
