CECT Launches The First Business Smartphone In China

 Qiao Xing Universal Telephone Inc., the second largest telephone manufacturer in China, has announced that its subsidiary CEC Telecom Ltd. (CECT) has launched China's first generation of high-end Smartphone that includes the Microsoft Smartphone 2002 operating system and embedded high-speed Intel 200MX-Scale CPU.

The high-end Smartphone is a result of the joint efforts of CECT and the Taiwan-based MiTAC International Corp. With advanced technology, it can execute data exchanges between telecommunications devices and computers, and integrates other applications, such as MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service),
digital photography, video imaging, MP3, gaming, MSN and movies. Through using the Microsoft Smartphone 2002 operating system, this new product not only has network-related functions, but also strengthens applications.

The Smartphone surprised both domestic and overseas clients during its display at the 2nd Huizhou International Digital Fair. Many telecommunications operators like China Unicom, China Mobile, China Telecom showed strong cooperative interest towards it.

The Smartphone demonstrates a technical breakthrough and a developing trend in China's mobile industry. On 10 June 2003, Smartphone was displayed at an exhibition hall in the China Telecommunications Museum.

"We have a unique mobile operating strategy. Blindly expanding production capabilities and random, large-scale price reductions are not how Qiao Xing does business," said Wu Ruilin, chairman of the board for Qiao Xing Universal Telephone Inc. "With our three R&D centres in China, we can focus on the high-end mobile market, continuously launching state of the art mobile handsets that lead the way in shaping our brand name in today's competitive market."
