(Nasdaq:ZOOM), a leading China based manufacturer of mobile phones and
related electronic products, today unveiled a new series of 3G "ZOOM"
branded stylish, yet rugged, smart phones. Based on Zoom's license of
3G technology from Qualcomm, the new handsets incorporate the latest
design in ruggedizing up to the IP-68 standard that protects the
internal circuitry from mishaps including complete water submersion at
1.5 meters for 30 minutes, dust intrusion, vibration and shock from

OS, providing an open platform for the endless supply of apps available
online today. Three new models: Camper Q1, Camper Q2 and Surfer Q3, are
targeted for release in the fourth quarter of 2011. The launching of

offering the newest generation of rugged phones, attractive in both
appearance and price to the world markets, including China, Asia,
Europe and the United States.
