ZTE Tania coming to Virgin Mobile in May

ZTE Tania coming to Virgin Mobile in MayThe ZTE Tania is quite a memorable little smartphone, if only because it has the worst name ever. Like, ever. Soon to be followed by the ZTE Sandra, ZTE Linda and ZTE Mags.

Mockery aside, it also hopes to stand out as a cheapish Windows Phone offering, and Virgin Mobile for one is jumping on board the Tania Train.

Come (what) May (mid-May, to be precise), you’ll be able to grab the ZTE Tania on Virgin Mobile for £199.99 on Pay As and when You Go. Alternatively, pay monthly contracts will start from £17.99 per month.

However, the big fat elephant in the room is the Nokia Lumia 710, which has recently been going for the offensively reasonable price of £135.

Despite being cheaper, the Nokia Lumia 710 is clocked higher (1.4GHz vs 1GHz), with double the internal storage (8GB vs 4GB). Oh dear.

The ZTE Tania and Nokia Lumia 710 share the same resolution (480 x 800), though on the Tania’s larger 4.3in display that obviously yields a lower PPI.

On the plus side, the ZTE Tania has 512MB of RAM, so you don’t have to worry about those irksome 256MB limitations that Tango is paving the way for.

Yeah, that's what I said. See? ;)

In my defence, I hastily grabbed that figure from another site. Note to self: don't trust anyone :p

Does show how desperate Nokia and MS are for the 710 to sell.
