The handset maker said that they would test Wibro system and devices jointly with Sprint-Nextel and provide a pilot service to carry out field tests and compatibility with Sprint data networks. The two also agreed to strengthen cooperation to promote Wibro as an international standard and technological advancement.

As Wibro makes its way to the world’s largest telecom market, it would get more momentum to be spread to the world and be an international standard, Samsung said. This is the first time that homegrown telecom technology and system penetrate the US market.

Last month at Samsung 4G Forum 2005, Samsung successfully demonstrated such Wibro services as seamless Internet access and video call while moving at 80km/hr.

Samsung plans to unveil more affordable and usable devices at APEC slated for November in Busan and to commercialize the service in the first half of next year for the first time in the world.
