QUALCOMM Unveils 2007 Roadmap for EV-DO Rev. B - New MSM7850 Chipset Delivers 9.3 Mbps Data in Field Trials -

    SAN DIEGO, March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- QUALCOMM Incorporated
 (Nasdaq:   QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of Code Division Multiple
 Access (CDMA) and other advanced wireless technologies, today unveiled the
 addition of a new product supporting CDMA2000(R) 1xEV-DO Revision B to its
 roadmap. The new Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM(TM)) MSM7850(TM) chipset is
 the industry's first device solution for EV-DO Rev. B, delivering highly
 advanced capabilities for next-generation data and multimedia services.
 QUALCOMM's recent field tests of EV-DO Rev. B technology resulted in
 average data rates of 9.3 Mbps on the downlink over 5 MHz of spectrum.
     "The evolution of CDMA2000 networks from EV-DO Rev. A to EV-DO Rev. B
 allows network operators to remain leading-edge in their service and
 performance offerings without the need for any infrastructure hardware
 changes," said Dr. Sanjay K. Jha, chief operating officer of QUALCOMM and
 president of QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies. "QUALCOMM's technology will allow
 3G CDMA networks to meet next-generation data requirements."
     The MSM7850 device chipset provides support for EV-DO Rev. B with full
 backward compatibility. Scheduled to sample this year, the MSM7850 solution
 provides manufacturers with a highly integrated, flexible solution to
 deliver the capabilities of Rev. B on consumer products. A software upgrade
 release to enable QUALCOMM's Cell Site Modem(TM) (CSM(TM)) CSM6800(TM)
 solution to support multi-carrier EV-DO Rev. B will be available by the end
 of March 2007.
     EV-DO Rev. B. enables applications such as mobile TV or streaming music
 with a concurrent voice call, or conducting a Voice over Internet Protocol
 (VoIP) conversation while simultaneously browsing the Internet or
 transmitting multimedia content over the network. The flexibility of EV-DO
 Rev. B technology also enables significant network capacity and performance
 enhancements while leveraging existing network investments and currently
 deployed devices. High-performance devices could support forward-link data
 rates of up to 73.5 Mbps, while lower-cost or pre-existing devices could
 support 4.9 Mbps. Network operators may reduce their costs by allowing a
 greater percentage of spectrum to be allocated to IP-based services.
