Stock quotes in this article: SPRD













SHANGHAI, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Spreadtrum Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPRD; "Spreadtrum" or the "Company"), a leading fabless semiconductor provider in China with advanced technology in 2G, 3G and 4G wireless communications standards, today announced that Spreadtrum's SC8810 1GHz TD-SCDMA smartphone platform is powering the Huawei T8808D, a dual-SIM dual-active smartphone for China Mobile consumers.

Huawei's dual-SIM dual-active feature provides consumers with maximum flexibility in how they manage operator service fees.  The dual-SIM function allows consumers to choose the SIM that offers the lowest rate or the best network coverage given their location to make or receive calls, send text messages, or use data.  Dual-active capability allows both SIMs to be used at the same time, enabling users to switch back and forth between two calls and use voice and data functions simultaneously.

Mr. Wang Weijun, Huawei Device's president of its Chinese division, said, "T8808D, as Huawei's first dual-SIM dual-active mobile phone, delivers experience innovation to China's 3G TD-SCDMA market.  In collaboration with Spreadtrum, Huawei will continue to promote popularization and development of smartphones to meet the diverse needs of Chinese consumers with a variety of high quality terminal products."

"Spreadtrum is driving technology innovation with 2.5G/3G single-chip dual-card dual-standby technology," said Dr. Leo Li, Spreadtrum's president and CEO.  "In cooperation with Huawei, we have enabled the first TD-SCDMA device based on Spreadtrum's SC8810 smartphone platform with dual-SIM dual-active capability.  This feature will enable consumers to select attractive 3G services while maintaining their original operator service packages.  We believe that this flexibility provided to the consumer will help further promote the rapid development of China's TD-SCDMA market."
