T-Mobile G1 to Run on Qualcomm's Advanced, Dual-Core Chipset

- Qualcomm Technology Enables First Mobile Phone Based on the Android Platform -

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions and one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), today announced that its chipset will enable the first Android-powered mobile phone -- the T-Mobile G1, manufactured by HTC. By integrating its chipset hardware and software capabilities with Android, Qualcomm has played an integral role in bringing the first Android handset to market.

"The launch of the T-Mobile G1 is a breakthrough moment for Linux-based open mobile application platforms," said Paul Jacobs, chief executive officer, Qualcomm. "Qualcomm's ability to tightly integrate our chipset hardware and software has helped to make the Android platform a reality. Our close relationship with T-Mobile, HTC and many other OHA members was instrumental in achieving this milestone and will allow us to bring products to market faster and spur continued innovation in mobile applications and services."

As part of its work with the OHA, Qualcomm has optimized the Android software by integrating it with Qualcomm's MSM7201A -- a single chip, dual- core solution that combines high-speed processing, hardware-accelerated multimedia capabilities, 3D graphics and built-in, multi-mode 3G mobile broadband connectivity for an optimal wireless experience. Leveraging these capabilities, the T-Mobile G1 provides an enriching user experience and supports applications that allow people to make the phone an extension of their personalities and lifestyles. GPS location-based services enhance Google's StreetView and Google Maps for mobile, while high-quality video playback and streaming functions support services such as YouTube. A 3 mega-pixel camera enables barcode scanning for applications that compare sale prices, search for reviews and store shopping lists.

Qualcomm worked with HTC on the design and development of this first Android-based device. Commenting on the project, Peter Chou, president and CEO, HTC Corporation, said, "HTC and Qualcomm have a long history of working together on groundbreaking mobile handsets. The new T-Mobile G1 is another example of this close relationship and our commitment to cutting-edge innovation. Qualcomm continues to provide us with the world's leading technologies and the support we need to continue our leadership position in designing new handsets."

Qualcomm is also working with other OEMs to develop handsets that operate on the Android platform as it works to expand the wireless ecosystem to meet the growing demands of an increasingly mobile population.
