Dolphin Telecom, currently in administration, could be rescued by US component maker Qualcomm. Dolphin offered business services on its Tetra network and Qualcomm believes it can use CDMA technology to offer '3G-on-the-cheap' voice and data services. Deloitte and Touche were appointed administrators on 1 August. Qualcomm is backing the consortium, called Inquam.
