We're really excited about this announcement, because it's the first announcement for the 800 series Snapdragon processor, Talluri says.
2/25/2013 3:18:31 PM
The 800 series was designed from the ground up to be a high functioning processor, he says.
2/25/2013 3:18:58 PM
2/25/2013 3:19:13 PM
Able to get a nice battery life because of the integration that went into the phone, including the LTE radio into the processor, he says.
2/25/2013 3:19:20 PM
Qualcomm Snapdragon, very good processors...the HTC One uses a Snapdragon 600 and I hear its performance is off the charts!
2/25/2013 3:19:33 PM
Talluri wraps it up, congratulating ZTE for the product.
2/25/2013 3:19:49 PM
2/25/2013 3:19:54 PM
Just imagine the speed with an 800 chip...
2/25/2013 3:19:55 PM
Up now is John Couling, senior vice president of E-Media for Dolby.
2/25/2013 3:20:32 PM
Consumers demand great experiences from their smartphones, Couling says. Consumers conclude audio quality to be important to their purchasing decision.
2/25/2013 3:20:56 PM
Choosing between convenience and that great experience isn't something we should have to do, he says.
2/25/2013 3:20:56 PM
2/25/2013 3:21:06 PM
We see that ZTE feels the same way, he says.
2/25/2013 3:21:21 PM
Grand Memo and Dolby Digital Plus takes the audio experience to the next level.
2/25/2013 3:21:36 PM
Dolby Digital Plus can be found in many other products such as TVs. But this is a first for a phone.
2/25/2013 3:22:04 PM
Dolby and ZTE continue to work together to create better sound experiences, he says.

2/25/2013 3:22:21 PM
I wonder how HTC and its Beats speakers compare?
2/25/2013 3:22:30 PM
We're in for a change in the line-up of speakers.
2/25/2013 3:22:46 PM
It's sort of like a line change in hockey.
2/25/2013 3:22:56 PM
Whoa the models have arrived bearing ZTE products!
2/25/2013 3:23:04 PM
For now, the first wave of speakers are posing for pictures, next to an attractive woman, of course.
2/25/2013 3:23:20 PM
And it's a photo opp :)
2/25/2013 3:23:41 PM
Okay, here comes the next set of speakers.
2/25/2013 3:23:49 PM
I can't ID them all at once, so I'll do it as they speak.
2/25/2013 3:23:59 PM
ZTE certainly knows how to pack in those speakers, huh?
2/25/2013 3:24:02 PM
2/25/2013 3:24:07 PM
(That wasn't a stereo pun.)
2/25/2013 3:25:23 PM
Mr. He is back with some additional comments, courtesy of his translator.
2/25/2013 3:25:26 PM
I feel sorry for this MC...not having a good press day here.
2/25/2013 3:25:52 PM
2/25/2013 3:26:00 PM
The second session will talk about Grand Open.
2/25/2013 3:26:24 PM
Fortunately, CNET has this phone covered too.
2/25/2013 3:26:51 PM
ZTE has been working consistently hard to provide users with better products and more choices for mobile products, he says.
2/25/2013 3:27:04 PM
He announces the Grand Open, the Firefox smartphone.
2/25/2013 3:27:16 PM
Even though Mozilla kind of announced it yesterday.
2/25/2013 3:27:47 PM
ZTE started working on the first Linux OS smartphone in 2003. Since then, ZTE has kept pace with innovation of phones, he says.
2/25/2013 3:28:01 PM
2/25/2013 3:28:24 PM
Mr. He certainly has a fearsome expression man. I'd take Peter Chou over him as my boss any day.
2/25/2013 3:28:37 PM
Man, I wish spoke Mandarin.
2/25/2013 3:29:10 PM
The Grand Open is poised as an entry-level phone. It's for young people who are adventurous and want to try something new.
2/25/2013 3:29:37 PM
The partnership among the three big industry players (ZTE, Mozilla, Telefonica) will allow for an extraordinary product.
2/25/2013 3:29:51 PM
2/25/2013 3:30:07 PM
In 2013, ZTE has entered into the sublimation stage where it transforms itself into a major smartphone player, he says.
