ZTE, Chinaâ€™s biggest handset OEM and rapidly rising in the ranks worldwide also, has told the Wall Street Journal it intends to expand into US with high-end smartphones running either Android or Windows Phone.
"Next year, we’re going to launch LTE and high-tier phones in the U.S.," said Lixin Cheng, president of ZTE North America. The company was in talks with carriers about the phone, which will either run Android or Windows Phone and will have ".. a similar feature set [as the iPhone], â€œ, but be "more affordable".
"By 2015, we expect the U.S. to be the largest market for handsets for ZTE," he concluded.
While ZTE primarily use Android in their smartphones, they have also released a Windows Phone, the ZTE Tania, which is seeing wide distribution in Europe already.
