Qualcomm has had physical presence in Nigeria since Sept 2010 and aims to expand the 3G ecosystem and create more opportunities for use of 3G-enabled devices in Nigeria. Qualcomm works with all the major OEMs (Nokia, Samsung, Blackberry) and some lesser known ones too, about 170 in all. Qualcomm is currently shipping over a million chipsets per day which end up in CDMA, 3G (UMTS) and LTE devices of various form factors (feature phones, smartphones, tablets, e-readers etc). Qualcomm’s integrated, single-chip solutions are enabling its partners to offer internet-capable 3G devices that support different tiers of market needs from high-end smart phones to low-cost handsets.
Qualcomm is interested in providing assistance to the Nigerian tech community on how to develop applications that increase 3G uptake. Qualcomm periodically puts out SDKs and most recently released an SDK around augmented reality.
