In order to compete with Qualcomm by producing LTE-capable semiconductors, late last year, Japanese wireless carrier NTT Docomo announced a joint venture with Samsung, Fujitsu, Fujitsu Semiconductor, NEC, and Panasonic Mobile Communications. NTT DoCoMo said a planned joint venture to design and sell chips for high-speed mobile networks based on the LTE (Long Term Evolution) standard has been abandoned. “The various stakeholders each had their own ideas, and an agreement could not be reached by the March deadline,” said DoCoMo spokeswoman Naoko Minobe, declining to provide any further details.
