PARIS – French mobile operator Orange announced Tuesday (May 16) it has started the initial phase of its live High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) services in the Paris suburb, a broadband connection up to five times quicker than its current 3G service. This comes a week after its main competitor, SFR, commercially launched in France a 3G offer integrating HSDPA technology in its Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) network.

Prior to the HSDPA testing in Issy-Les-Moulineaux and in Boulogne-Billancourt, two big cities of the Paris suburb, Orange concluded an agreement with Alcatel in order to validate, in laboratory and on the field, the performances of its new technology. Friendly users can now test true mobile broadband services including very high-speed Internet access and fast download of video clips.

HSDPA is a key technology for making mobile broadband possible. It represents the next important evolution step for our 3G/UMTS commercial networks”, commented Vivek Bradinath, executive vice-president, Products, Technology and Innovation, Orange Group, in a statement.

France Telecom’s mobile branch said it intends to launch its next generation of high-speed mobile services by September for companies and slightly before Christmas for retail consumers in France.

A couple of years ago, after 28 years of running Acer Inc., co-founder Stan Shih retired–but you wouldn't know it. The guy just can't stop moving, and everything he does these days is with the singular intention of elevating Taiwanese companies into the category of household names. Although some see his mission as quixotic in a place where most companies are content to stay behind the scenes, Shih remains convinced that Taiwan's long-term prosperity will be based on a formula that leverages its established manufacturing and logistics prowess with product innovation that eventually leads to brand recognition.

Acer took that path, and so too have Taiwan's other best-known tech brands: BenQ and Asus- tek, both run by Acer alumni. To encourage more of the same, Shih is putting his money where his mouth is. Along with some former Acer associates, he runs a venture capital fund, iD SoftCapital Inc., that specializes in finding companies in Taiwan and China with a focus on advanced-technology development and global branding.

Shih recently spoke with EE Times' Mike Clendenin about Asia's next brands, China's role in the tech world and why invention isn't the only kind of innovation.

EE Times: Since Acer, a few Taiwan companies, including BenQ and Asustek, have attempted to build brands. How feasible is it for Taiwan's contract manufacturers to make the transition into global brands?

Stan Shih: Brand requires innovation, and innovation needs a market to share the risk and provide an incentive for the return. Because Taiwan is far from the major markets [geographically], it is very difficult to take an innovation and gain access to the major markets in order to commercialize it.
