Ericsson and Mannesman rollout the world's first GSM adaptive antenna base stations

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Date: Monday, April 17 2000

Mannesman Mobilfunk GmbH will deploy Ericsson's GSM Capacity Booster, a unique adaptive antenna solution, in the D2 GSM Network. It is a new innovative wireless access technology that further enables significant capacity and
quality improvements in GSM networks.

The Ericsson GSM Capacity Booster resolves capacity bottlenecks and further increases quality in a GSM network. Even when adaptive antennas are deployed in only 10 percent of a GSM network a total capacity improvement of 100
percent is possible.

To offer the subscribers a high quality of service is one of the highest priorities for operators when wireless data traffic takes off. Adaptive antennas ensure high quality of service and more efficient use of the existing GSM frequencies and infrastructure.

The GSM Capacity Booster was developed by Ericsson in close co-operation with Mannesman and is a milestone in wireless technology. The GSM Capacity Booster, which consists of an indoor radio base station (RBS 2205) and a passive
eight-lobe array antenna (adaptive antenna), is an integral part of Ericsson's high capacity solutions, which offers a complete solution portfolio for GSM operators who need to raise network capacity.

The GSM Capacity Booster improves the GSM network from a previously unused domain, spatial beam forming. Unlike conventional cellular antennas, which transmit over the entire cell, adaptive antennas use "beam forming" to direct
the signal in narrow beams towards the location of the mobile phone. Furthermore this improvement can be used on top of all other technologies to reach quality and capacity levels that previously were unreachable using conventional base stations.

Similar to all Ericsson RBS 2000 macro base stations, the GSM Capacity Booster offers a future proof solution, and will support GPRS, EDGE and 3G functionality.

Ericsson is the leading provider in the new telecoms world, with communications solutions that combine telecom and datacom technologies with freedom of mobility for the user. With more than 100,000 employees in 140 countries, Ericsson simplifies communications for its customers - network
operators, service providers, enterprises and consumers - the world over.

Background information
Ericsson and Mannesman Mobilfunk began their joint research activities on adaptive antenna technology for GSM in early 1995. A research field trial was first carried out in Dsseldorf during 1996 to evaluate radio performance. In
1997, prototype base stations were developed and, in early 1998, integrated into the Mannesman Mobilfunk GSM network.

Ericsson makes strategic GSM breakthrough in Iran

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Date: Monday, April 17 2000

Ericsson has been chosen by the Telecommunications Company of Iran (TCI) to
expand their nationwide GSM network.

Ericsson has been present in Iran for many years and has a long-term
relationship with TCI delivering wireline systems. The current decision by TCI
to name Ericsson the supplier of the GSM expansion represents a break through
for Ericsson in also delivering mobile systems to TCI.

TCI will expand their GSM network from 600,000 to 1,000,000 subscribers. An
immediate task will be to rapidly expand the mobile network in the capital
Teheran, a city with over ten million inhabitants.

Ericsson will supply GSM 900 to TCI. The complete turnkey solution includes
planning TCI's radio network and delivering radio base stations, switching and
other equipment in the radio network.

Deliveries will start by the end of this year.

Ericsson is the leading provider in the new telecoms world, with
communications solutions that combine telecom and datacom technologies with
freedom of mobility for the user. With more than 100,000 employees in 140
countries, Ericsson simplifies communications for its customers - network
operators, service providers, enterprises and consumers - the world over.

This stock is the core of my retirement portfolio and will remain so unless I see evidence to the contrary that something has fundamentally changed to the negative side. FWIW, my approach over the past seven years or so has been to (a) stipulate and accept the inherent volitility of the stock price, (b) add to your holdings when the stock takes a hit (like now), and (c) do nothing, while continuing to monitor the fundamentals. So far at least, I've been rewarded handsomely for adhering to that game plan.

I know it is a bad idea to fall in love with a stock, but I admit to a modest crush on this baby.

Hello, Dio. The only but biggest mistake I made w/Ericy was to sell 50% when I felt I was getting over-concentrated. Live & Learn.

Best.

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 18, 2000--The semiconductor industry is extremely interested in the forecast for cellular phones.
Some sources estimate that the cellular phone market may exceed one billion units by 2002. If so, billions of ICs would be needed.
But, is the cellular phone market that big. In a recently published Snapshot Study, Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth, Semico Research Corp. presents a much more conservative forecast. Semico believes that the market for cellular phone handsets will be less than 500 million units by 2004.
There are three critical elements that must be addressed to forecast the growth of cellular phones: the actual number of cellular subscribers, the active life of a cellular phone, and the level of inventory that cellular service suppliers will maintain.
Can a worldwide population of 6 billion people utilize or afford one billion cellular phones? Do the currently projected growth rates also include a hidden assumption that the definition of a "cellular subscriber" is somehow being changed?
Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth analyzes cellular phone penetration rates by geographic region and answers these questions. The implications of world politics are key to the cellular phone market. Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth reviews the situation in China. Why has the Qualcomm rollout been suspended?
Will cellular phones remain in use until subscribers can gain a significant increase in services or performance, or will cellular phones become a disposable product that is tossed away as soon as a new service carrier has a better offer? Replacement rates directly affect cellular phone handset forecasts. Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth provides assumptions for replacement rates.
Cellular service suppliers have been willing to maintain levels of inventory that would be considered excessive in other industries. This inventory represents units that are in transit or that are required for local inventory in order to insure immediate delivery in geographic areas with rapidly expanding services.
Semico believes that inventory will increase from 148 million units in 1999 to peak of just over 250 million units in 2002. Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth discusses the impact of this peak.
Cellular Phones: Ringing in Growth is available for immediate shipment. The list price is $995.
Semico Research Corp. is a leader in providing semiconductor market research and custom consulting. Other products and services are available at the Semico Web site, www.semico.com.
