News for the week in the mobile world. April 12 – 18, 2004

Like a good cell phone model, the past week turned out to be balanced in terms of main events: the news touched on both the business matters of the operator business, announcements of new products, and technological innovations designed to prevent the river of investment in communication systems from turning into a trickle, or even completely dry.

The "cold" meeting was organized for a new product from Nokia – the Nokia QD game console, equipped with the ability to "hot" swap memory cards. Apparently the press, not impressed by the successes of the previous console, decided not to test the novelty with rosy forecasts, but to quietly and calmly observe what is happening, without undermining their reputation as powerful analysts. The main differences from the N-Gage “1” were the modified interface of Nokia Series 60 2.0, the possibility of “hot” change of memory cards, a more capacious battery with a capacity of 1070 mAh, improved ergonomics and reduced case dimensions to 118x68x22 mm.

Let's take the liberty of making some predictions about this gaming console, the price of which will be only 199 USD at the time of the product's release on the market in May-June 2004. Apparently, since the release of the phone, Nokia has refused to receive any significant profits from sales of the console itself, concentrating on the financial return from sales of games. This simple fact is evidenced not only by the price, but also, for example, by the lack of a stereo headphone output, the presence of which would significantly add to the console's attractiveness for use in non-gaming areas.

The phone will certainly find its customers. This will be facilitated by the price, awareness of the saying “the first pancake is lumpy”, the presence of a Bluetooth adapter – I have no doubt that many will buy Nokia N-Gage QD as one of the cheapest and most functional models with a Bluetooth adapter.

The second announcement, which attracted much more attention, was the announcement of the new PXA27x mobile processors (formerly known as Bulverde) from Intel, belonging to the XScale processor family. The new line of processors will have clock speeds of 312, 416, 520 and 624 MHz and have 32 or 64MB of integrated StrataFlash flash memory. Cell phones and PDAs should become the main area of ​​application of new products – for example, among the secure protocols supported by processors, there are VPN, SSL, OMA, IMEI and OMA-DRM. There is also a built-in controller for two LCD displays, a digital camera, there is support for Wireless Intel SpeedStep and Intel Intel Wireless MMX technologies, designed to save battery power consumed by the chip and increase processor performance when running multimedia applications. The wholesale price for the junior model of the announced family in lots of 10,000 pieces will be 32 USD.

Once again, Qualcomm's dominance with legal consequences in the CDMA chipset market has been heard. Previously, the company has already responded to antitrust lawsuits filed by Texas Instruments (then they ended in victory for Qualcomm, but the litigation of rolling lawsuits between the companies is still ongoing) – now o Maxim has taken the case, accusing Qualcomm of violating antitrust laws and inappropriate patent policy for public technologies . It seems that this year will be the last year for Qualcomm as the "king" of the CDMA mountain.

Among the operators' news, CNN's report deserves attention, according to which in one of the most closed countries in the world – North Korea, the connection of mobile network subscribers has begun. It is reported that the cost of connection is about 900 USD, while it is necessary to purchase an operator's mobile phone worth 360-380 USD – amounts unattainable for residents of this country, where the average monthly income is much lower than the amount of 100 USD.

According to the results of the tender, the coupon rate was 9.28% per annum. Yield to maturity amounted to 9.5% per annum. The bonds were placed at a price equal to 100% of the face value of the bonds. The entire volume of bonds was placed at the tender. The volume of demand exceeded 2 billion rubles. During the placement, 43 deals were made.
The exclusive arranger of the bond issue of MegaFon OJSC is the investment group Renaissance Capital.

North-Western branch of the company was not put out by financial statements, but announced the launch of the first public Wi-Fi access point in St. Petersburg. Services based on the technology of Wi-Fi wireless data transmission networks (IEEE 802.11b standard) became available to visitors of the Tinkoff restaurant located on Kazanskaya Street. The characteristic of mobile operators to not delay the test provision of new communication services for a long time can result in an explosive growth of the WiFi access market by the beginning of next year.

Russian operators are much more active than their North Korean counterparts. So the MTS company on Friday, April 16, celebrated 20 million subscribers in its network. It is clear that with the daily connection of tens of thousands of new subscribers, it is almost impossible to find and isolate that very cherished 20 millionth, and such a task was not set. It turned out to be about "twenty", taking into account almost 5 million subscribers of the Ukrainian UMC network – and it's good, no one is going to belittle this remarkable achievement. Moreover, the second 10 million MTS users were recruited in less than a year. Sergey Potresov's full article about this event is already posted on our website – you can read about the exploits of the leading Russian operator here.

MegaFon did not lag behind, announcing the placement of a bonded loan in the amount of 1.5 billion rubles.
