Zi Corporation, which unveiled its latest innovations for its user-friendly eZiText predictive text technology to the Asian wireless industry last month, has won a new deal in China.
Today, it announced that the company has licensed its eZiText product to handset manufacturer Nanjing Panda Mobile Communications Equipment Co., Ltd. (PMC). PMC is the ninth largest handset company in China and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nanjing Panda Electronics Company Limited. PMC has both design and manufacturing capabilities and is considered one of the faster growing companies in the Chinese handset market due in part to the wide reach of its parent.
PMC has licensed eZiText in English, simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese in its GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) handsets for use in the greater Chinese market. PMC is expected to introduce its new GSM and GPRS handset designs embedded with eZiText in the second half of this year.
