Brazil: Rio Grande do Sul Becomes Third State to Make Cell Phones

    The Brazilian companies Teikon Tecnologia Industrial and Venko Telecomunicações signed  with the government of Brazil’s southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul, a protocol of intentions for the implementation of a cellular phone factory in the state.

    The project should get US$ 7 million. The production should reach one million phones in 2006 on the GSM standard for mobile telephony. Production starts in February.

    They will manufacture mobile phones of the "Talento" model, equipped with integrated loudspeaker, games, blue display, wap, 30 polyphonic rings, organizer, intelligent keyboard and 100 memory spaces.

    With the new factory, the Rio Grande do Sul will become the third Brazilian state to manufacture cellular phones, which demands state of the art technology.

    The project should create 200 direct and indirect jobs. The information is from the spokesman for the government of the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
