deCarta and ZTE Mobile Telecom Bring Advanced Navigation and Location-Based Apps to Consumers Across China

ZTE Mobile Telecom Will Provide Its Customers With Fast, Accurate Navigation and Location Services in a Growing and Demanding Market

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — deCarta, the leading independent enabler of location-based services (LBS), today announced a partnership with handset provider ZTE Mobile Telecom to provide Chinese consumers with advanced search, navigation and mapping services in its mobile handsets.  

As one of deCarta's first major customers in China, ZTE Mobile Telecom plans to bundle deCarta's applications on its handsets.

"Demand for premium location-based mobile services in China is growing at an incredible rate. Our users want the quickest, most precise navigation and mapping capabilities possible," said John Chen, CTO of ZTE Mobile Telecom. "deCarta's applications deliver these capabilities and give our consumers a more reliable and trusted solution than our competitors."

In China, demand for location-based services has grown rapidly without Google in the region; this has left OEMs to find other providers of worldwide location-based applications for their Android devices.

"deCarta provides OEMs and developers with global mapping and navigation applications and APIs," said Mike Cottle, vice president of worldwide sales for deCarta. "We are working with ZTE and other OEMs as well as independent application developers in China so they can offer unique LBS services to consumers in China."
