I scribbled a bit about the ZTE Tania yesterday. You know the one: ZTE’s first own-brand handset of 2012, decent specs, price tag around £250, front-runner for Worst Smartphone Name of the Year.
Time for a wee gander at the official ZTE Tania press release now. What do you mean “slow news day”? Cheeky sonofa…
As I mentioned yesterday, ZTE Tania specs include a 4.3in TFT WVGA display with 480x800 resolution, 1GHz of Qualcomm MSM 8255 processing action, 5MP rear camera with autofocus and flash (no front-facing, sadly) and Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) on OS duties.
What do Microsoft and ZTE make of the Tania? Best handset ever? Probably.
ZTE’s Mr Wu Sa, director of mobile operations in the UK, screamed: “We're delighted to be working with Microsoft and as a key partner will support the industry forecasted growth on this exciting new platform with both the ZTE Tania and in the future a growing range of devices.”
The sultry Leila Martine, director of Windows Phone UK, adds: "Having ZTE join the Windows Phone family is great news. Their expertise will be crucial in delivering Windows Phone to new and different customers. We look forward to continuing and developing our relationship with ZTE in the future."
It’s official then: good times are here with the ZTE Tania. Fancy it? You can grab yourself a ZTE Tania from Clove from February 13, priced £249.99.
