Samsung develops 'fast' phone

Samsung Electronics Co said on Tuesday 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 Samsungs Telecommunications Network Business.

The mobile, equipped with Qualcomms Mobile Station Modem, is a product of strategic collaboration between Samsung and the US company.

The new handset marks "an exceptionally important milestone in driving the commercialisation and deployment of this technology worldwide," said Sanjay K Jha, president of QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies.
