    SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 19 /CNW/ -- ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), the leading
global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions today

largest mobile operators. This cooperation covers handsets and data card
devices for mobile applications. T-Mobile and ZTE have declared a new
strategic partnership spanning all the European markets of T-Mobile.
    The signing of a General Framework Agreement (GFA) on handsets and data
cards emphasizes the intention to strengthen the cooperation between T-Mobile

No.1 network operator Deutsche Telekom and it's affiliate T-Mobile. The
relationship has been stepped up considerably in the last few months, this is
why ZTE has opened a new office in Bonn. ZTE now has a dedicated business unit
