Proposed Revised Citation -- Bberg (talk) 21:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC)[edit | reply | new]

Here is a version of the citation that came from Advocate Dave Bart, and which has my support as Proposer:

On November 7, 1989, Qualcomm publicly demonstrated a cellular radio system based upon Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). The technology, later known as cdmaOne, incorporated features that maintained voice quality, increased capacity, reduced dropped calls, lowered device costs and extended battery life. cdmaOne formed the basis for IS-95 and follow on second and third generation cellular standards

This citation is currently being assessed by a few technical contacts in the cell phone industry, and I will provide feedback as I receive it.
