Samsung to make HSDPA handsets for Vodafone Group

The Korean mobile phone manufacturer Samsung has announced that it will be developing new 3G cell phones for Vodafone Group, as well as the possibility of working with Vodafone K.K. of Japan. Making use of Qualcomm’s modem chips (Mobile Station Modem, to be exact), the world’s third-largest handset maker will be implementing high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology.

HSDPA takes WCDMA and gives it a huge boost in speed, allowing subscribers to quickly and efficiently gain access to internet services, video files, music downloads, and other multimedia content. Gone are the days of monochrome displays and monophonic ring tones; and as such, data transfer speed and efficiency are becoming more and more important to the average cell phone consumer, especially with the growing popularity of mobile TV.

This new line of phones is said to be the first commercially available HSDPA handsets, and they will be “launched exclusively for Vodafone,” according to Samsung. No financial details have been released.
