The 3G roll-out begins
Posted: 13-Oct-2002 [Source: Wireless Week]

[A view of the status of 3G in Europe and some comments from the UMTS Congress held recently in Paris.]

"You might not have noticed, but the first third-generation mobile phones were being handed out in the United Kingdom this week, heralding the arrival of a bold new mobile age.

Don't worry if you missed the news. You didn't see the multimillion advertising campaign because there wasn't one. Hutchison 3G, the company behind the move, has not been making much of the development.

And you're unlikely to see the new phones popping up on the train. Only around 500 handsets will be issued in the UK, to "friends" of the company. They will not pay for the privilege of using 3G, but simply provide feedback on services and their quality.

Those users should see some interesting stuff, however. Hutchison plans to offer full motion video clips (it owns mobile rights to Premiership football), person-to-person video calls, news and financial information and high-resolution gaming. There will also be some content from partners including the BBC and Emap, the magazine publisher."
