Press Release Summary: The number of 3G subscribers using WCDMA and CDMA2000 is
growing at a fast pace owing to advanced 3G features and its rapid adoption by both
developed and developing nations.

Press Release Body: RNCOS, a leading market research firm, has released a new report
– “3G Market Forecast to 2010”- that says the total number of 3G
subscribers using WCDMA and CDMA2000 grew 45% in 2007 over the previous year to
cross the mark of 600 Million. The rise in the number of 3G subscribers during 2007
was due to attractive features of 3G technology, such as effective and high data
speed and a wide range of mobile applications offered, including wireless Internet
access, video conferencing, etc.

According to the report, CDMA2000 accounts for majority of the subscribers in the
total 3G subscriber base as countries like Japan, Korea and the US have rapidly
embraced the technology. The same trend is anticipated to sustain in near future but
WCDMA will witness higher growth rate in its subscriber base. Thus, the total number
of 3G subscribers using CDMA2000 technology worldwide is expected to grow at a CAGR
of 23% during 2008-2010.

Apparently, the growth in CDMA2000 standard will continue to dominate the global 3G
subscribers market but Western Europe will exhibit a different trend where the WCDMA
technology remains the focus of its 3G market, says the report. Moreover, the launch
of HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), a technology that improves the
downlink performance of WCDMA networks, is likely to increase the demand for WCDMA
technology in near future. The number of WCDMA subscribers will surge at a CAGR of
50.7% during the period spanning from 2008 to 2010.
