The article focuses on wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) capable handsets. Research showed that the WCDMA market is growing much faster than the overall handset market. It is noted that in order for a mass adoption of 3G devices to occur, the size and cost of WCDMA solutions must be reduced.
