Sprint today officially confirmed it will use Qualcomm's QChat technology for its next generation Push To Talk (PTT) on the Revision A network. When launched in early 2008, QChat phones will be able to communicate with each other as well as iDEN PTT handsets on Nextel network. The announcement comes as no surprise as Nextel had exclusive rights to the platform and had been work had begun between Motorola and Qualcomm to integrate QChat and iDEN networks before the carriers merged. QChat has long been expected to be an improvement over Ready Link or other cellular PTT systems. By launching QChat in conjunction with its Revision A network, which has quality of service features and other new technology to improve speed and reliability, Sprint should be able to match the performance users expect from iDEN phones. This year, Sprint is expected to launch phones that combine CDMA for calls and data with iDEN for PTT as a stepping stone to this new all CDMA technology.
