@GREAT-Terry: Yes, ZTE operates its business also in India (has on office in Mumbai). How ever, it seems to have missed some opportunity because of security concerns and the required clearances by the Indian government.
Last year, India blocked local phone carriers from buying equipment made by ZTE as well as Huawei. It is mandatory for carriers to obtain security clearance from the telecoms ministry before placing equipment orders.
I suspect the above decision was based on a series of attacks on Indian government websites by suspected Chinese hackers in 2010.

ZTE is also a large manufacturer which doesn't only product phones in China. I think their phones also be sold to India, middle east and africa. It is true that the focus is not on high end phone so I wonder if Intel is also targeting with mid to low end phone market.
Intel can associate or buy some reputed mobile vendor to quickly explore this market. May be, RIM. If not, they can collobrate with Microsoft. What will be OS for this mobile - Android or Windows Phone 7?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
