[The addition of Near Field Communication technology to some of its chipsets helps Qualcomm bring mobile payment and other short-range application connectivity to mobile handsets.]

San Diego -- Qualcomm Incorporated announced that the Company has added support for Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to certain chipsets in its product portfolio. Qualcomm is helping accelerate the commercial availability of mobile handsets featuring the short-range technology and is engaged with leading NFC solutions providers to develop reference designs based on the Company's Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM(TM)) chipsets. NFC technology is well suited for payment, mass transit, ticketing and other similar applications requiring a quick and secure contactless exchange of data between devices that are in close proximity to each other.

"NFC technology holds great potential for changing the way mobile devices are used," said Mike Concannon, senior vice president of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver leading-edge technologies and value to our customers, we are now engaged with leaders in NFC technology to offer reference designs that have this next-generation functionality."

NFC is a short-range wireless connectivity technology operating at 13.56 MHz and transferring data at up to 424 Kbps.
