ZTE Corporation says it's shipped 35 million mobile handsets in the first half of 2011, around a 30% year-on-year increase globally. Sales in Europe have increased by a similar percentage.
Worldwide sales of smart devices were up 400% year-on-year to 5 million units, thanks to the ZTE Blade becoming one of the world’s top-selling smartphones.
HTC Corporation has acquired Dashwire, a US-based company that makes the 'Dashworks' platform to help users set up their smartphones and access mobile content across multiple devices.
Dashwire will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of HTC.
