at the lower income and less developed markets in China, such as the western
region, and also second and third tier cities, such as Dongguan in the Guangdong
province, Qinhuangdao in the Shandong province and Beihai in the Guangxi
province.

Key handset features:

  • Competitively priced with high functionality; block style design; optional
    colors for the fashion conscious user
  • MP3, MP4, camera and FM radio
  • Touch screen
  • Stores music and video; T Flash Card memory also has improved sound
    quality

ZTC CEO Charles Huang commented, 'The rural and less developed areas of China
are experiencing rapid economic growth, rising incomes and wireless empowerment
through China Mobile's aggressive roll out of wireless services. The ZT8860,
with its low price and powerful functionality is targeted at selected markets
looking for increased function and practicality at a competitive price.'
