I don't think so, they've already announced the grand era for the end of Q4.

well if true there Facebook quote is a fail.. tegra 2 is not one of the best gaming smartphones any more... it was... tegra 3 devices are

tegra 2 is ancient, iv had mine nearly a year.. and i got it a year after it first released

zte are a joke, at MWC 2012 where they first showed off the zte era they said it would be releasing Q2... now they say Q4 on facebook...

i dont know what to believe any more :blink:

EDIT:
6 days from now they will be releasing this phone... there has been no advertising on the web for where to actually buy it from or anything..
this will be a massive fail... how many people will actually know its available after 6 days time? and where they can go buy it?

i for one, would certainly not know if i never read this thread... (i have a feeling they are talking crap again, or they really are terrible at marketing lol)

EDIT2: WTF... i think they are just announcing yet another phone.. before some event in London on the 18th

they say we can have it in are hands, so i expect a phone been released... if not i have no more respect for zte,
they are just misleading everyone and talking s*** on facebook etc...

they announced nine new phones at MWC 2012 seven month ago, not one has released... by the time there available something better will be available..

TEGRA 3 + is coming this year

TEGRA 4 (wayne) start of 2013

Getting tired of waiting for this phone. Have around £200 to spend and was holding out for one of these for so long only to find out its name has changed and release date keeps getting pushed back. It's either this or a G300 which to be honest isn't my cup of tea but will buy one for it's bang for the buck performance if this phone isn't with us in the next month =(

coolsmartphone have stated on twitter they have been invited to a zte press conference, they would not be inviting tech sites if was just another new phone announcement, no this will be something the tech journalists can hold in their hands and report on.

Way back in Feburary at MWC, ZTE showed 4 devices..

https://twitter.com/Sebastian404/status/174133704866803712/photo/1

The Kis and the Skate 2 have been released...

We are talking about the Mimosa X here, But what about the Skate Acqua...

Also don't forget they had a load of tablets on display, some of them are out in the rest of Europe.. maybe ZTE want to try and ruin the Nexus 7 party..
