The first cell phone for use on both GSM and CDMA networks will go on the market in China in mid 2004, Xinhua reports.
The mobile phone can switch between networks by using two cards with the advantages of the large flow of data provided by CDMA and the nationwide service of GSM.
The new double-mode cell phone launched by China Unicom will be named "World Wind".
Mobile phone manufacturers Motorola and Samsung are launching mass production of the phones for China Unicom, which will start procurement from January.
