SAN DIEGO — November 01, 2004 — QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, today announced plans for a subsidiary to deploy and operate a nationwide “mediacast” network, delivering many channels of high-quality video and audio programming to third-generation mobile phones at mass market prices. MediaFLO™ USA Inc., a subsidiary of QUALCOMM, intends to provide interactive multimedia services to consumers in cooperation with U.S. cellular operators. MediaFLO USA has been structured as a subsidiary because QUALCOMM intends ultimately to spin off its ownership of the business to its shareholders.
