“2011 has been an important year for ZTE in France
as we moved to target our devices at mid-high end markets and were recognized
as the world’s fourth largest handset vendor,” said Emmanuel Rousseau, ZTE
Director of Mobile Handsets in France.

“The outlook for 2012 is fantastic, with Android
Honeycomb tablets and an array of Windows Phones in the pipeline. ZTE has
expanded its product range to offer operators worldwide a broad range of
