China's Amoi has signed a purchase contract with Orange, a subsidiary of France Telecom.
The latter will purchase nine types of Amoi 3G mobile phones.
Wang Zhiquan, a spokeperson from Amoi, says that Amoi was one of the few manufacturers that has made substantial headway on 3G technology. According to Wang, Amoi had exported more than 100,000 3G mobile phones by December 2005.
Amoi also disclosed to local media that it has invested an accumulative total of CNY100 million on 3G development in recent years and it would continue injecting additional investment in the future.
