  • China Exports Office Automation Terminals to N. America
  • January 5, 1999 (BEIJING) -- The Ministry of Science and Technology announced that China has exported to the United States, Canada and several other countries portable mobile office automation telecom system terminals.
    A ministry official said that the exports of the telecom product represent a major breakthrough for China's telecom equipment industry. He said the orders for the systems are valued at US$68 million.

    In addition to telecom functions, the system can copy, scan, fax, store and print documents. It weighs 1.2kg and is about the size of a dictionary.

    The system was developed by a joint venture of the Hebei-based Hengda Wireless Communications Group and Datang Telecom Technology Corp. The joint venture has signed contracts with Motorola Inc. of the United States and several other telecom equipment producers.

    The Hengda Group, based in the Shijiazhuang High-Tech Development Zone in northern China's Hebei province, has set up production bases in the United States, Canada, Singapore and Japan. Datang is a listed high-tech company.
