DALLAS and TAIPEI -- Accelerating the deployment of high-speed Internet and robust multimedia services to 3G mobile devices, STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM - News; ST) and Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE: TXN - News; TI) today announced they are sampling the industry's first standard cdma2000® 1xEV-DV solution. Considered a superior technology migration path for cdma2000® operators, the 1xEV-DV standard provides users with broadband capabilities via their cell phones, PDAs, and other mobile devices, enabling extremely high-speed Internet connectivity at ten times the speeds provided by current cdma2000® 1X and GPRS solutions, while simultaneously supporting the voice capability of cdma2000® 1X.

To ensure availability of devices and equipment ready for commercial deployment of 1xEV-DV technology, TI and ST are collaborating with Nokia for interoperability testing with South Korea-based LGE's infrastructure unit. This testing is in support of wireless operator LG Telecom's (LGT) planned commercial deployment of EV-DV services in South Korea.

"LGT believes 1xEV-DV is the right direction for cdma2000® advancement and is committed to the deployment and evolution of the standard. This solution from TI and ST is a key enabler for the deployment of advanced multimedia applications on LGT's 1xEV-DV network," said Dr. Youn-Kwan Kim, LGT vice president, Network Technology Standards.
