China TechFaith Wireless Communication Limited ("TechFaith") announced it will expand shipments of it ruggedized Android JPAD into Russia and South Africa in early February of 2014.

According to a release, TechFaith's JPAD ruggedized PAD, was designed on the Android operating system operating on QUAD Core CPU and runs on WCDMA/GSM networks, with IP68 and MIL-S810G standards certifications.

TechFaith's JPAD is a dual sim card device, with an ultra-long battery life of 6000mah.

Deyou Dong, President and COO of TechFaith, said, "We continue to find very encouraging demand for our ruggedized mobile phones and JPADs in both the retail and enterprise segments. Consumers are reluctant to make an investment on a new device knowing that it will likely be dropped, cracked, broken or severely damaged often within just hours or days of purchase. By offering ruggedized versions, TechFaith is giving consumers the powerful technology experience and features they demand with the durability they need. The combination represents a value added offering to the market and one benefiting from increased traction in our domestic China market and in vibrant international markets, including Russia and South Africa."

TechFaith has three primary businesses. The Company is a global mobile solutions provider for the global mobile handsets market (previously called the ODP (Original Developed Product) business)). The Company is a developer of specialized mobile phones for differentiated market segments, including the smartphone market targeting wireless mobile phone network operators and end users; the Company also serves sports enthusiasts with a tailored line under the Jungle brand and the teen market under licensed brands.
