"For Zapp, it is an honor and a confirmation of its success the fact that the second edition of the 450 MHz Digitalisation Conference is held in Bucharest. This forum of CDMA 450 operators and equipment and handset manufacturers takes a deep look at challenges and opportunities for mobile communications in the 450 MHz spectrum," said Cuneyt Turktan, President of the Zapp Board.

During the conference, Zapp will hold demonstrations of services such as Zapp Me (based on the BREW platform), EV-DO, BREWChat and will test roaming calls with Russian operator Delta Telecom.
