China telecom product supplier CEC Telecom Co. Ltd has joined with the telecommunications operator China Communication Co. Ltd and technology supplier Shenzhen Rongine Technology Ltd to manufacture satellite navigation terminal products, including GPS/gsm mobile phones, for the China market.

Under the agreement among the three parties, CECT will manufacture at least 500,000 units of GPS/GSM mobile phones for China Communication to launch to the China market on an annual basis.

The GSM mobile phone is integrated with a GPS function and is priced no more than middle-end GSM mobile phones, according to the companies. It enables the user to access the GSM network being operated by China Mobile and China Unicom and China Communication's GPS service network.

In China, satellite navigation and positioning technology are now being widely applied in public security, exploration, surveying, meteorology, and agricultural and industrial production. The satellite navigation industry is one of the fastest growing information technology sectors in China, say industry observers.
