The Japanese wireless market has traditionally been innovative and dynamic, adopting the latest technologies quickly and releasing new devices and features at a rapid pace. I am proud that ST-Ericsson is powering some of the latest devices that are being launched in this market.
Last month, Sharp selected the Thor thin modem for another smartphone in their award-winning AQUOS product line. The AQUOS smartphone is based on the power efficient ST-Ericsson Thor M5730 21Mbps broadband modem.
We are seeing good traction with our Thor modem lineup, in part because the Thor 21Mbps modems are small and power efficient, enabling manufacturers to embed the modem into sleek and attractive consumer devices. They are also verified in and proven on a global basis and the excellent mobile broadband performance speeds up your mobile life!
The new AQUOS smartphone from Sharp is available now in Japan.
