HONG KONG, April 9 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Elcoteq SE, a leading integrated electronics manufacturing services (EMS) company with original

design manufacturing (ODM) capabilities in the communications technology field, will introduce its

electronics manufacturing services and present as one of the keynote speakers at the Next-

Generation Mobile Technologies Seminar, being held at the Embassy of Canada in Tokyo, Japan

on April 17 and 18, 2008.  Dr. Folkert Wierda, Director, Business Development, Personal

Communications Business Area at Elcoteq, will describe ways to profit in the burgeoning

communications market with a paper, "IEMS: From 'Quick Fix' to Best Total Cost of Ownership".

    Using an EMS company that specializes in the communications technology market enables

communications companies to have an asset-light corporation, increased flexibility, risk sharing,

and it allows management to focus on products, brand, and sales.  It increases the speed of doing

business and time-to-market, reduces complexity, and provides the best total cost of ownership.

    "There are so many new technologies, opportunities, and companies involved in the mobile

communications industry, especially with mobile computing, that we are happy to add our expertise

and experience as participants in the symposium," said Dr. Wierda. "Elcoteq has focused on

communications technology for over 20 years. We are one of the three largest EMS mobile phone

manufacturers in the world, with over 1 billion handset assemblies delivered. Elcoteq considers

optimization of total cost of ownership to be a key factor for brand owners in ensuring their profit as

the communications market moves forward. We are hoping that our participation in this symposium

raises recognition of this issue." 

    The Next-Generation Mobile Technologies Seminar 2008 is co-hosted by Inter-Embassies Mobile

Forum (IEMF), The Mobile Computing Promotion Consortium (MCPC), and the Canadian Embassy

in Tokyo. The event will share the latest mobile technology, products, and information among

professionals of the wireless industry in Japan and overseas, including business executives,

decision-makers, buyers, engineers of mobile phone carriers, handset manufacturers, and systems
