Samsung Electronics Co. said it had developed what it claims to be the world's fastest multimedia-downloading mobile handset.
The phone, equipped with an MSM6280 chip from the Qualcomm of the United States,
enables users to download music or other multimedia content at a speed of 3.6
megabits per second, or approximately 10 MP3 music files a minute.
The mobile using "high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology," was
unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the company said.
"Samsung is proud to showcase HSDPA as the future of mobile broadband," said Kitae
Lee, president of Samsung's Telecommunications Network Business.
The mobile, equipped with Qualcomms Mobile Station Modem, is a product of
strategic collaboration between Samsung and the US company.
