Chinese handset manufacturer TCL Mobile Communication has shipped 10 million GSM/GPRS cellular phones based on Analog Devices SoftFoneR platform and TTPCom’s protocol stack and applications software.
“Analog Devices’ platform and TTPCom’s software have enabled us to quickly develop a complete range of handsets to serve many segments of the market,” said Wang Kailong, chief engineer, TCL Mobile. “The ability to add new features in software allows us to react quickly to changes in customer requirements, while meeting our cost and performance objectives.”
TCL and Alcatel recently agreed to establish a joint venture company engaging in the research and development, subcontracting of manufacturing, sales and distribution of handsets and peripheral devices.
Tony Milbourn, managing director of TTPCom said, “The strategic partnership between our three companies has enabled TCL, not only to lead the Chinese market in terms of innovative products, but also to reach the point where they are the handset brand to watch.
“If TCL continue as they are going today, I have absolutely no doubt that they will be one of the top five manufacturers in the world.”
