Motorola talks about GPRS handsets
Posted: 25-Aug-2000 [Source: Reuters]

[The GPRS phones are coming, but there might be a considerable wait according to this report.]

Helsinki -- "Motorola said on Friday it planned to have its first Internet GPRS mobile phone on the market in the last quarter of this year, a few months earlier than its main rivals.

"I haven't got the exact roll-out plan but we're planning for that (Q4 launch)," Jessica Frithiof, Motorola's product manager for Motorola wireless applications in the Nordic/Baltic region, told Reuters Television in Stockholm.

"GPRS (general packet radio services) networks, which are due for launch from year-end in the Nordics, will allow mobile phone users to access the Internet continuously and quickly, with significantly better quality services than WAP-enabled phones.

"The fight to be first on the market with a phone using the new technology is becoming increasingly crucial for manufacturers to keep a lead in this competitive industry.

"Nokia of Finland, the world's leading mobile phone maker, said it would have a GPRS phone available by mid-2001, which is considerably later than both Motorola Inc, the world's second biggest cellphone maker, and Sweden's Ericsson.
