ZTE (News - Alert) Corporation, a provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has launched the ZTE MF823, the world’s smallest 4G LTE (News - Alert) datacard.
The ZTE MF823 has already been launched in Kazakhstan and will launch soon in Europe and Asia-Pacific countries.
Officials with ZTE Corporation said the MF823, which offers consumers fast and easy Internet connectivity, uses Qualcomm’s second-generation LTE chip platform and is only 13mm thick, nearly a third of the size of the first-generation LTE datacard, making it the world's smallest LTE datacard.
According to company officials, the MF823 has a web UI operation, supports IPv6 and is compatible with Win8/XP/Mac and all major operating systems.
It supports LTE-FDD DL/UL 100/50Mbps, UMTS-HSPA+: DL/UL 42/5.76Mbps and GPRS/GSM downward compatibility allowing consumers to enjoy high speed internet access wherever they are without the need for a fixed line internet connect or public Wi-Fi hotspot.
Company officials pointed out that the average power consumption of the MF823 has also been greatly reduced compared to the consumption of the first-generation LTE datacard; it uses a third less power. It has improved radiating properties and with the lowest working temperature in the industry it will not feel hot even after long time use.
The MF823 has been optimized in terms of high-bandwidth, low-delay and high-communication rate (to reduce the dropping rate of data and voice communication), to ensure that users can enjoy a new generation of mobile high-bandwidth Internet access.
Recently, ZTE Corporation announced the availability of the Android (News - Alert) 4.2 Jelly Bean experience version on its N880E Android smartphone. ZTE is the first Chinese vendor to launch an Android smartphone with Android 4.2.
This announcement came just one week after Google (News - Alert) released Android 4.2, its latest operating system. Users of the ZTE N880E upgrading to Android 4.2 will experience improvements in operating performance as well as updates to Google Now and gesture typing. In addition, new features such as the Photo Sphere camera functionality and photo filter function will provide consumers with more personalized content for work and play.
