DoCoMo, KTF team up to buy 3G/HSDPA data terminal

17 Jul 2007

Unconfirmed reports suggest that NTT DoCoMo is partnering with South Korean counterpart KTFCorp to develop a USB-interfacing HSDPA data terminal for PCs, as part of a wider joint purchasing tie-up between the firms. The two firms will manage the development project through their Business and Technology Cooperation Committee, an entity set up to handle joint purchasing arrangements when the partners signed a strategic alliance in December 2005. The new terminal, to be marketed in Japan as Foma A2505 High Speed, will be available from this autumn and provide connection speeds of up to 3.6Mbps in the downlink.
