A Sprint spokesman today confirmed that the patent rulings against Qualcomm will not delay Sprint's launch of QChat, a next generation walkie-talkie technology. The injunctions against Qualcomm allow them to sell infringing EV-DO chipsets until 2009, though Broadcom had asked for an immediate injunction on all QChat capable chips. Sprint is expected to launch QChat in the first half of this year. QChat was developed by Qualcomm, who worked with Motorola to develop an alternative to iDEN direct-connect for other networks.

WORD

Outstanding! - I can't wait to see these new qchat phones. Anyone think this will revive sprint's PTT? How many Nextel customers are left, like 20 million? I wonder what the new advertising campaign will be like, hopefully not circle drawing ptt commercials. Do anyone have any new picture of the first phones?
