Well from CNET UK, ZTE told CNET UK that it will be on all major U.K Carriers, including Orange. Will it be the NEW Orange San Francisco, Or will we see it completely unbranded and sim free?

CPU Upgrade Confirmed 1GHz so it will be an ARMv7!

I would not think that availability on orange is inevitable.
Orange probably got a good deal from ZTE for SF and I do not think similar deal on Skate will be agreed.

If it is on Orange at all then the price will be much higher than anticipated and it may be called, following tradition, Denver, or Philadelphia. Double name like San Francisco is not very elegant.

If you think about it Orange have a habit of using alot of ZTE Handsets like the Rio, Lisbon etc. Orange is proberly ZTE biggest customers. And the sucess of the San Francisco it's likely for us to see the Skate under Orange Branding. But saying that they would like to keep the price as low as possible, So they might pass on this one. But any idea of which different carrier it would be under? Vodafone is my bet.

OR instead of the Skate we have the Amigo instead?

Well, considering the Skate's gonna be a 4.3" blade, I'm probably not gonna be too excited about it. It says "Oooh, 800MHz CPU", but it's just an overclocked MSM7227, apparently, and not the one found in the Desire Z, which is 800MHz, yet significantly faster

Looking here: http://thehotgadget....date.html/1527/ they say they are expected top flog for less than $100! Which is missile on euros/pounds! Not a huge upside over the blade tough, but a larger screen and faster processor. Ok, theres a better comets with flash, but I personally, don't use it anyway :D., if its under £150 and my sf breaks, then its mine D

Nope, it will DEFINITIVELY have an ARMv7 CPU, there was a ZTE publication where they told specs, and they've noted that the ZTE Skate will support Flash 10.1!

I wouldn't of thought that it would come overclocked anyway. I don't think they'll get the £99 price tag, if they do they've cut a corner some way or another.
buying the Orange SF, it really changed what i think of these China Manufactuers (I don't made in china, as in chinese brand) there proberly all made in the same factory!

I thought there was a large thread about how it would only have the 7227. Well, at least that's a reassurance. because THE 800MHz ARMv7 proccessor at the moment is the one in the Desire Z. Which is quite a bit nippier than our blades.

If its less than £150, supports Flash 10.1, can be modded with custom ROMs & has a better camera (note: Bigger MPixels doesnt equal better camera!!) then I'm gonna get a Skate.

Dont really care about speed. I think a fully modded Blade is fast enough for me!!

It would be great if it had the MSM7230 800 MHz Snapdragon, but everything so far has pointed towards it having the 800 MHz MSM7227-1 Turbo.

Look carefully and you can see ARM11 800 MHz in this picture.

If it has a native gingerbread modded possibility is not really necessary.
