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.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
