ZTE's ZTE9 joint venture unveiled a Tegra 4-based media player and game console, and ZTE announced an IPTV/OTT STB, both featuring Android and video chat. Like Huawei, ZTE is a major Chinese telecom equipment provider that has more recently moved aggressively into mobile devices. They primarily serve up Android phones and tablets, but ZTE has also been the major hardware vendor behind Firefox OS, along with China???s TCL/Alcatel, recently announcing the Firefox OS based ZTE Open C and Open II. Now it???s expanding its Android portfolio with two very different TV set-top boxes (STBs): the FunBox and the MeBox.
