Motorola announced that it has signed a one-year US$310 million deal with China Mobile to provide telecommunications products and services, AFP reported. China Mobile will use Motorola’s products to develop infrastructure for existing second-generation (2G) networks using GSM, GPRS and EDGE technologies. Additional equipment and services are intended to smooth the transition between 2G and 3G networks. China Mobile’s 3G network will be based on the homegrown TD-SCDMA standard. Earlier this week, China Mobile had its plans to purchase a stake in Taiwan’s Far EasTone Telecommunications shot down after Taiwan said it would not open its telecom sector to mainland investment.
