Demand for our tailored mobile phone products from enterprise customers remains strong as evidenced by the continued growth in our TecFace branded line. We are also seeing higher customer demand for our Android-based phone solutions, which we expect will further benefit us in the second half of 2011. We plan to extend our competitive advantage with 6 new Android-based smart phones in the third quarter of 2011, along with plans to tailor software applications that we can bundle together with our mobile phones. We are optimistic given that we foresee an increasing demand, in particular, in Latin America, the Middle East, Europe and South East Asia.
Based on current market conditions, the Company expects continued growth in its branding and motion gaming businesses, with softer sales in its ODP business. As a result, TechFaith expects revenue for the third quarter of 2011 to be in the range of US$78.0 million to US$80.0 million, with gross margin levels similar to those for the second quarter of 2011.
