Samsung, NXP, and T3G have teamed up to produce the world’s first TD-SCDMA HSDPA/GSM Multi-Mode mobile phone. The software-defined modem is capable of data transfer rates up to 2.8Mbps. The Samsung SGH-T578H uses the modem, which enables data transfer about 20 times faster than GPRS.

TD-SCDMA networks have been put up in 10 Chinese cities and the networks are planned to be upgraded to support Release 5 in 2008. "Samsung has always been at the cutting edge of mobile technology. Together with NXP and T3G, we have achieved several major milestones for TD-SCDMA phones - from the first TD-SCDMA video phone to this current high data transfer rate TD-HSDPA dual-band prototype," said Mr. W.S. Lee, Vice President, Handset R&D Planning, Telecommunication Network Business, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. "Multimedia and sharing of content will be the drivers for next-generation handsets. The combination of T3G's leading TD-SCDMA technology and NXP's very innovative EVP technology make them obvious partners of choice to provide consumers a high-end multimedia experience in a run up to the Beijing Olympics."

The Samsung SGH-T578H uses the 2.8Mbps HSDPA modem and Adelante VD32040 embedded vector processor that fully supports 3GPP TDD-LCR Release 5, quad-band EDGE, and dual-band TD-SCDMA.
