SAMSUNG Electronics Receives Additional CDMA System Order from China Unicom`

SEOUL, Korea # April 10 2002 # In May 2001, Samsung Electronics was among the CDMA hardware suppliers officially selected by China Unicom. Since then, Samsung Electronics’ presence in the Chinese CDMA equipment market has been accelerating with the receipt of new orders.

Initially, Samsung provided US$120 million worth of CDMA systems, with the capacity to accommodate 1.13 million subscribers. A follow-up US$30 million order was received to install CDMA systems for 250,000 users in the Tianjin and Hebei regions last year. Now, Samsung Electronics will supply an additional US$10 million worth of CDMA systems, with a 70,000-subscriber capacity, to Fujian Province. To date, the China CDMA system business has come to US$160 million in systems to serve 1.45 million people.
