Zoom Technologies Raises Leimone Brand Sales Guidance

Guides to 700,000 Leimone Brand Mobile Phones in 2010, a 10-Fold Increase From 2009; Demonstrates High Acceptance by Mobile Phone Customers in China

BEIJING--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  Zoom Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOM), a leading China based manufacturer of mobile phones and related products, today announced that orders for its Leimone brand mobile phones continue to be strong in the second half of 2010. As a result of this trend, the Company is increasing its unit sales guidance for 2010 by 17% for the Leimone propriety brand mobile phones to 700,000 units from 600,000 units. This annual unit guidance represents a ten-fold increase from 2009. In the first half of 2010, Zoom sold approximately 128,000 Leimone mobile phones. For the second half of 2010, Zoom now expects to sell 580,000 Leimone mobile phones, including 100,000 units of the latest 3G design. The Leimone brand phones have a higher profit margin than Zoom's traditional EMS business and they are sold through China Telecom and various retail outlets.

Zoom's Leimone brand product line currently includes 17 models of Leimone feature-rich mobile phones equipped with state of the art technologies, with four models for China's 3G networks. Zoom unveiled its first Leimone brand 3G phone designed specifically for China Telecom's 3G market in early 2010. The successful E63 model was followed quickly by two additional 3G models, the Leimone E66 phone designed for professionals and the feature-rich Leimone E33 phone aimed at the price sensitive youth market.

Mr. Leo Gu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zoom Technologies, stated, "We are proud of our continued expansion in the rapidly growing China 3G market and our ability to produce mobile products for top tier Chinese mobile phone companies. Leimone brand mobile phones are extremely popular with the growing number of young people in China who seek feature-rich, mid-priced and sleek designed mobile phones. In addition, our ability to significantly increase our manufacturing capabilities in the second half of 2010 underscores our strong position in the robust China mobile phone market."
