Designs on Display Include Custom-Made Handsets for Vodafone and China
SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading
global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, is to
unveil a full portfolio of smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2009. Ten
different designs will be on display, including customised handsets for
Vodafone and China Mobile.
The VF 1231 model will be the highlight of ZTE's showcase which has been
developed especially for Vodafone. The smartphone is based on Windows Mobile
platform and has a single chip for GSM and EDGE.
ZTE's smartphones range from low to high-end handsets. Latest models
include the 'XIANG' series of 3.5G super slim HSDPA/HSUPA handsets, the e760
(a GSM-based handset custom-made for China Mobile) and the D820/D810 (a
CDMA-based handset custom-made for China Telecom). Also, ZTE will be
displaying the U981, a top-end smartphone that was deployed by China Mobile
during the Beijing Olympic Games.
"The demand for smartphones has reached the point where they are no
longer seen as a luxury or a strictly work-related item. ZTE has recognised
this trend early on and invested in developing a range of smartphones that not
only offer a sleek design, superior processing capabilities and attractive
price end consumers desire, but also work smoothly on the carrier's network.
ZTE is meeting the specific requirements of leading mobile operators such as
Vodafone and China Mobile, and helping smartphones become a popular item
worldwide," said Xiong Hui, vice president of handset division of ZTE
ZTE's range of smartphones is based on the latest operating systems for
the next generation of smartphones and well-established systems like Linux and
Windows Mobile. ZTE has invested heavily in the research and development of
smartphones during the last 5 years. The complete range of smartphones is
being showcased at ZTE's Mobile World Congress stand (Hall 8, B127), where a
special area is dedicated to the latest models.
