ZTE press releases
Actually I think it is pretty balanced given the whoel conterversy part seems to make it feel like they are slamming the company for being a 'strong' supporter of ethical behavior.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:32, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Maybe I should find out more about ZTE. I don't think simply using press releases violates that SOAP policy, however. Using third-party, independent sources would hopefully not "enliven" the article with contradictory information but should deepen it's breadth and broaden its depth, instead.

List of Customers
I think there should not be such a comprehensive list of customers.
- I agree. The List of Customers is bizarre. I will delete it.--Lester 08:14, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Mobile Broadband - market position
No mention is made of their market dominance in the Mobile Broadband sector, particularly 3GSM dongles and Mobile Broadband routing equipemnt for service providers. Also no mention of world first http://wwwen.zte.com.cn/en/press_center/news/201002/t20100211_180344.html, first 4g network card. some references: http://www.strategyanalytics.com/default.aspx?mod=pressreleaseviewer&a0=4896 http://www.cn-c114.net/583/a521245.html http://www.rethink-wireless.com/2011/02/01/huawei-zte-continue-wireless-growth.htm JavaByte (talk) 15:39, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
ZTE Corp. plans to launch a high-end smartphone in the U.S. in the middle of next year, an executive said, marking a change from its low-cost emphasis and putting it in head-to-head competition with the likes of Apple Inc., HTC Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. and Nokia Corp. in a high-end market that's growing ever more crowded. "By 2015, we expect the U.S. to be the largest market for handsets for ZTE," Lixin Cheng, president of the Chinese company's North American region, said in an interview Wednesday in Hong Kong.
Controversies - Iran
The source sentences, from the already given cite, for my addition that was reverted is:
- 'According to a spokesman for the U.S. Treasury Dept., a U.S. company would violate sanctions "if it exports products requiring a license to a third party with the knowledge that its products will end up in Iran." In the case of the U.S. products on the ZTE packing list, many - and possibly all - do not require an export license and the companies say they did not know they were being shipped to Iran.'
- 'sanctions have not specifically targeted Iran's telecommunications industry ... European Union diplomats said the bloc's 27 governments had reached an agreement in principle to target telecommunications equipment ... But no final decision has been made and there is no target date for implementing such a ban.'
I think those fully justify my addition of "However many of these U.S. products, possibly all, do not require an export license. There are no current international restrictions on exporting telecommunications equipment to Iran.", and I will reinstate it unless anyone can explain why my precis of the already given source id flawed.
