Zi Corporation, a provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced that Dalian Daxian Telecom Co. Ltd., the Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of mobile phone products, has licensed Zi's eZiText predictive text input technology in five languages.
Dalian Daxian Telecom is a subsidiary of Dalian Daxian Co. Ltd., a large-scale electronic information product group. Daxian is actively targeting important emerging markets in Russia and Indonesia as well as the greater Chinese markets of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. To serve the wide variety of networks in those areas, Daxian has licensed eZiText in Chinese (simplified and traditional), English, Russian and Indonesian for use in its mobile phones for the rapidly expanding CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access), GSM (Global System for Mobile) and PHS (Personal Handyphone System) wireless markets.
A number of Daxian products already include Zi's technology, but the eZiText technology was designed into the products by ODMs (original design manufacturers) and, with this agreement, Daxian now directly licenses eZiText from Zi.
