Since the 1990s, Qualcomm has worked closely with the Chinese government and China’s mobile operators to help ensure the highest quality communications possible—voice and data—for Chinese citizens. The company has driven the development and adoption of first CDMA, then WCDMA, and now, LTE, across the immense and diverse country that serves more mobile subscribers than any other region on the planet.

Recently, Qualcomm and its executive chairman, Dr. Paul Jacobs, were bestowed the “Outstanding Contribution Award on Global CDMA Devices” by China Telecom Corporation Limited, the world’s largest CDMA network operator, at the 2014 Global Smart Terminals Show.

Now in its sixth year, the Global Smart Terminals Show has become the largest mobile phone trading fair in the world, attracting nearly 300 domestic and international exhibitors and more than 10,000 enterprise participants from the smart device industry, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, software developers, and chipset suppliers. The show is also open to consumers and more than 370,000 showed up to see the latest smartphones and other cutting-edge technologies, including wearable devices and automated cars.

Not to miss an amazing opportunity, Qualcomm loaded its booth up with the company’s latest technologies and wares including: a Formula E racecar accompanied by Qualcomm® Halo™ Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging technology, devices equipped with applications and services that enable digital sixth sense-type capabilities, multi-mode 3G/4G LTE devices, and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors supporting 4K Ultra HD cameras and advanced photography.
