Aquos smartphones powered by Thor thin modems from ST-Ericsson
December 14, 2011 // Jean-Pierre Joosting
ST-Ericsson is pleased to announce that Sharp has announced three smartphones in Japan based on the ST-Ericsson Thorô M5730 modem. With its low power consumption, this highly-integrated 21 Mbps Thor modem will enable consumers to spend more time surfing the Internet at high-speeds and less time worrying about charging the battery.
"We have worked with Sharp for several years and are pleased that they have selected our Thor M5730 thin modem for their latest smartphones," said Staffan Iveberg, senior vice president and head of the thin modems solutions division at ST-Ericsson. "We have had solid traction with our Thor HSPA+ 21 Mbps thin modems at several leading smartphone manufacturers and are pleased to add Sharp to the list."
ST-Ericsson's Thor family of mobile broadband thin modems makes ultra-fast web browsing and high speed data connectivity ubiquitous, easy and reliable. The Thor M5730 modem, which brings improvement to the 21 Mbps market in size, power consumption and thermal performance is capable of delivering 21 Mbps downstream and 5.76 Mbps upstream simultaneously, and needs no separate flash memory when combined with an application processor.
The AQUOS PHONE 102SH by Softbank and AQUOS PHONE SH-01D by DOCOMO are available now in Japan by their respective carriers. The AQUOS PHONE 104SH by Softbank is expected to be available in spring 2012.
