ZTE leads India’s data card market with a 30.2 percent market share in Q2, 2013
A couple of months back, ZTE made an entry into the Indian market by launching six Android smartphones and four 3G data cards. Its data cards have done well and the Chinese OEM is now the leading vendor in India, with a user base of 63.04 percent.
According to a CyberMedia Research, the overall Indian data card market registered a quarter-to-quarter growth of 66.7 percent in Q2, 2013 as compared to Q1, 2013. A large part of this growth can be attributed to ZTE, which alone shipped nearly 30.2 percent of those data cards in the second quarter of this year.
To remind you, ZTE launched four 3G data cards, which are independent and not tied to any particular network carrier. These data cards under ZTE’s Swift brand include, Swift (7.2Mbps with Voice Call) priced at Rs 1,799, Swift Plus (14.4Mbps) priced at Rs 1,999, Swift WPlus (14.4Mbps with Wi-Fi) priced at Rs 2,250 and Swift Speed (21.6Mbps with Voice Call) priced at Rs 2,499.
