China Communications, 9/05/08
Sources at handset customization firm Topssion recently revealed that China Mobile (NYSE: CHL; 0941.HK) has invited consulting firm Accenture to help it ensure broader social acceptance of TD-SCDMA handsets. Li Weichong, Accenture's vice director for the Greater China region, has stated that the matter is currently still under discussion.
Dismissing previous rumors, Li believes China Mobile won't adopt handset customization as a way to promote TD-SCDMA sales.
Topssion was founded in 2004 by the China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC), ZTE (0763.HK; 000063.SZ), Ningbo Bird (600130.SH), Huawei, and several other firms. The company's primary business is handset customization, sales, service and other value-added services.
