ZTE has partnered with Russia's JSFC SISTEMA to develop what they said is the world's first navigation and communication terminal that will use all four of the world's major satellite navigation systems.

The quad-mode device, which was unveiled to the public at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, China, uses the Russian Glonass system, as well as the United States' GPS, Europe's Galileo and China's Beidou.

It is the first satellite navigation device that may be used across borders and will even allow mobile telephone calls to be made using GSM and CDMA networks, ZTE said in a statement. The terminals now work with Glonass and GSP and will work with Galileo and Beidou when they come to market, it added.

The terminals are designed for navigation, positioning, emergency communications and dispatching applications.
