Vivo launches 3G services based on CDMA EV-DO and hint of high-speed wireless PDA in Brazil
Posted on 12-Jul-2005 09:38 | Tags Filed under: News



Brazilian mobile operator Vivo is launching 3G services that include high speed wireless access to the Internet and a video service. The new platform is being launched with partnership with Qualcomm e Samsung. Brazil is one of the top five celluar markets in the world by number of connections.

The official press information distributed hints of a new PDA and PC cards to be launched with CDMA EV-DO capabilities, but the company have not responded to our requests for detailed information on these new features.

The new service Vivo Play 3G can be reached through a new icon on compatible mobile phones connected to the network. Vivo Play 3G gives access to video downloads and streaming, music, pictures and 3D games.

New 3D games are being introduced as a benefit of the performance achieved with the combination of new cellular handsets and network performance.

The CDMA 3G EV-DO technology can reach up to 2.4 Mbps (megabits per second), but average should be around 500Kbps, if the experience in other markets counts.

Multimedia content is being offered by local and international partners such as TV Globo, TV Bandeirantes, Band News, Band Sports, Terra, Fox, Nickelodeon, Discovery, CBF, Po de Acar, Mbile Fun, Xportes, Trama, Jamdat, and others.

One of the first offerings with Fox will be 24 Conspiracy, a version of TV series 24 in a format suitable for the small screen of a mobile phone. Each episode is one minute long, with new episodes daily.
