The smart terminal products that have deployed the Spreadtrum chip platform have gained popularity and recognition from Indian consumers over a period of time for our superior cost versus performance ratio. At Spreadtrum, we are focused on providing supreme quality products and services to our Indian partners and are facilitating the development of the mobile communication industry in India."
