Qualcomm opens Turkey office

Haberturk - Qualcomm, known for its wireless communication technologies and mobile device processors, has opened its first office in Turkey. Turkey’s strong embrace of the 3G technology and rapid growth in the number of subscribers, reaching 20 million in 1.5 years, has led the patent owner of the 3G technology to open up shop in the country.

“Qualcomm has decided to invest in Turkey as one of the key emerging markets in line with the company’s 2011 plans to focus on transition from 2G to 3G, emerging markets, smart phones and new mobile device categories,” said Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs.

Bill Davidson, Qualcomm’s Vice President of the Global Marketing Department, also underscored Turkish mobile users’ rapid adaptation of the 3G technology, saying, “The growth of the Turkish market has been impressive, which has led Qualcomm to invest in the country.” Davidson said that Qualcomm’s Turkey office will play a role in addressing the demand for smart phones and high speed mobile internet by better understanding the localized needs.
