Alameda, CA -- UTStarcom, Inc. announced that the company has signed a contract to deliver an initial shipment of 250,000 units of its C1160 CDMA1x handset to China Unicom Corporation Limited (China Unicom). The new contract is part of a larger frame agreement to supply handsets to China Unicom, the second largest CDMA operator in the world with more than 30 million subscribers overall.

Designed and manufactured by UTStarcom, the C1160 is an affordable 800MHz CDMA1x handset with an elegant, clam-shell design and a 1.3" DSTN LCD screen. Features include 12-note polyphonic ring tones, SMS predictive text capability and removable user identity module (R-UIM), which is designed to enable users to transition phone directories and other personal data when upgrading handsets without the need for additional programming. UTStarcom's C1160 handset has a long battery life with a three-hour talk time and more than 100 hours of standby time.

"This announcement represents the first contract in what we believe will be an on-going relationship to develop CDMA handsets for China Unicom, the second largest CDMA operator in the world," said Hong Lu, chief executive officer at UTStarcom, Inc. "UTStarcom has committed significant resources to the development of our own internally designed and manufactured handsets with extensive R&D operations in both China and Korea. Earlier this year, we introduced our first internally-designed and -manufactured CDMA handsets, the CDM-7000 series developed for the North American market. The C1160 model is the next in a line of cost-effective, high-quality handsets that UTStarcom plans to introduce for carriers in markets around the world."
