Hot on the heels of its first Windows Phone effort, the Tania (worst name ever), rising Chinese manufacturer ZTE has revealed the Orbit at Mobile World Congress.
Actually, perusing the spec sheet, the ZTE Orbit and Tania aren’t massively different. Do we really need both, ZTE?
While the ZTE Tania has a 4.3in display (480 x 800), 1GHz Qualcomm processor and 5MP camera, the ZTE Orbit has a – wait for it – 4in display (480 x 800), 1GHz Qualcomm processor and 5MP camera.
So essentially the ZTE Orbit is aimed at all those people who thought: ‘Man, I really like the look of the ZTE Tania, but it’s around 0.3in too big.’
Other ZTE Orbit specs include 4GB internal storage and 512MB of RAM. Presumably that’s Windows Phone Mango in the engine room as opposed to Tango; I could go poke ZTE with a stick and find out, but I doubt anyone’s that bothered. Yeah, it’ll be Mango.
The ZTE Orbit will be available from Q2 2012, though no word on pricing just yet. The ZTE Tania is currently available for around £200 SIM free.
