Qualcomm Announces New UMTS Products Available to Customers for the United States Market


SAN DIEGO .— Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions, today announced the availability of new UMTS (WCDMA) chipsets designed to comply with the latest ruling from a federal judge in Santa Ana, CA. The Company’s new products are available to device manufacturing customers for product shipment into the United States.

“Qualcomm has available new UMTS chipsets that offer a seamless transition for impacted device manufacturers who are shipping devices into the U.S. market based on our flagship products,” said Alex Katouzian, vice president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. “We are working to comply fully with the court ruling while minimizing the impact on our partners.”
