Digi.Com Bhd expects to commercially launch its Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) services in the current quarter after the ‘DiGi NOW — The Future Fast Forward’ EDGE showcase on April 16, says chief executive officer Tore Johnsen.

Speaking after introducing DiGi’s partners for EDGE services on April 6, he said DiGi was the only telco in Malaysia and the third in Asia to make the EDGE technology commercially available.

The EDGE technology enables high speed mobile data transfer required for such applications as movie and music downloads, live television broadcast and traffic information delivery.

He said the EDGE partners — beMobile, Channel 9, Ericsson Malaysia Sdn Bhd, iNavigate, Nokia Mobile, Natseven TV and Siemens Mobile — would be participating in the showcase, in which visitors could go beyond simple text and voice messaging and experience 3G-like services. The showcase will run from mid-April to mid-June.

At least 15 new EDGE-enabled handset models will be available by the third quarter, up from six models currently.
