LAS VEGAS -- ZTE USA, Inc., a subsidiary of ZTE Corporation, a leading global telecommunications equipment and network solutions provider, today announced at CTIA Wireless 2008 the availability of two new handsets for the U.S. market, the ZTE C78 and the ZTE C79 music phone. The handsets are among the first in the U.S. market to operate on the AWS frequency bands, in addition to the PCS and Cellular bands. Carriers who operate on these frequencies can now provide subscribers access to current and next generation voice, data and multimedia applications with ZTE’s high quality and affordable multimedia handsets. The C78 and C79 will join the recently announced C88 in ZTE’s portfolio of handsets for the U.S. market.

“With the recent availability of the new AWS spectrum, carriers now have the potential to provide expanded wireless services to U.S. customers. Selecting the right device is a key to bringing the benefits of the new spectrum to life for end-users,” said Dr. George Sun, CEO of ZTE USA. “Our new handsets allow U.S. carriers, both large and small, to leverage the AWS spectrum and fully profit from their investments in the spectrum.”

The C79 is a full-featured and easy-to-use flip phone which includes an MP3 music player, 1.3 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a 2 inch high resolution screen and support for MicroSD removable memory cards.

The C78 handset is an affordable “candy bar”-shaped phone equipped with a VGA camera and capabilities for multimedia messaging and Internet browsing. It also enables hands-free conversation through wireless headsets supporting Bluetooth.

As with all its products, ZTE both designs and manufactures its handsets in-house. This end-to-end approach enables ZTE to offer feature-rich, high quality phones at an attractive price point.

ZTE offers a full portfolio of end-to-end wireless handset and networking solutions in the U.S. that are designed to offer quality and technology innovation at affordable prices. The company's handsets have won numerous international design awards. In addition to handsets, ZTE also offers a wide range of solutions in CDMA and WiMax technologies along with other telecommunication products.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
