Nokia completes HSDPA call

30 Nov 2005

Nokia has revealed that it has completed a high speed 3G mobile call using HSDPA technology at its research centre in Beijing. The vendor says the call attained data transmission speeds of up to 3.2Mbps. Nokia plans to launch its first 1.8Mbps HSDPA software upgrades by the end of the year, with 3.6Mbps upgrades introduced in 2006. The firm is hoping to win a sizeable slice of the Chinese 3G equipment market; the government is expected to award three or four next-generation licences next year, with at least one of these based on UMTS/HSDPA technology.
