New 3G Chip From Qualcomm Brings UMTS / HSDPA To Masses

Qualcomm has introduced a new single chip solution for phones that combines quad-band GSM / EDGE with tri-band UMTS or HSDPA. The 3G frequencies can be tuned to be Euro-centric (900/1800/2100), America centric (850/1700/1900) or any combination of 1 low frequency and 2 high frequency bands. The chip can also provide a variety of multimedia features like support for 3 Megapixel cameras, 15 fps video recording, advanced audio and video playback and USB 2.0 High Speed. Not only can this one chip provide the functionality included in mid-range 3G handsets, it is only 1/2 inch square. This should help manufacturers to reduce the size and increase battery life of future 3G phones. However samples of the chip will not be available until late next year, and phones using it will probably not hit shelves until 2008.
