Qualcomm announced that sample chipsets for next generation UMTS and CDMA 2000 networks are now available. The company has produced a complete chipset solution to support HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), the faster revision of WCDMA (UMTS) that is capable of bursts up to 1.8 Mbps. The MSM6275 also supports legacy GSM networks, including GPRS and EDGE data. Qualcomm also produced samples of an CDMA 2000 EV-DO Revision A base station modem. Revision A increases EV-DO's speed both down- and up-link to bursts of 3.1 Mbps and 1.8 Mbps respectively. Due to advancements in both the protocol and technology, the new modems are capable of supporting up to 8 times the user capacity than first generation EV-DO modems. Cingular has already announced it will build out its 3G network using HSDPA, while both Verizon (which has launched EV-DO Rev. 0) and Sprint have mentioned EV-DO Rev. A for their next generation networks.

Whoo boy... a fresh topic... that BS lawsuit was getting stagnant Shocked But on a serious note, all Qualcomm is god for is their chip production (great chips too).
whoops I meant good, not god Very Happy We all know who's god, do we not? Twisted Evil
Actually, Qualcomm has patents for just about every wireless technology. They have more to say about wireless infrastructure in the USA than anyone else does. They sneeze and the entire industry catches a cold.
