I'll try to keep up those cpu questions. If they said it will run Flash, then it has to be armv7. But then another thing - it can be the same processor as in the Blade.

You think?
I say, no, it can't be, if it runs flash.

Why? Galaxy Ace has the same cpu but stock overclocked to 800MHz, works with no problems.

May work with no problems, but Galaxy Ace can't do flash, just like Blade.

Only thing that the native safe cpu freq for this chipset is 600MHz. So either it will be a little unstable stock OC'd cpu or a natively running 800MHz armv7 cpu handling flash 10.1. Either ways I'm looking forward to this device. As for the brand name, I think it will stay ZTE Skate, whatever the network will be.

I'd say CPU is "upgraded" a bit from Blade.
Too bad it's a tad slow if you compare to other handsets that come to sale... but I don't mind, if the price is right!
Actually, i'm too old to skate.
But that's the only skateboard I want! :P

From ZTE's release

ZTE Skate was inspired by a skateboard

Has anyone had a go of one? (Looking at you and your countrymen Pheonix_silver)

Still no news on when CheapSkate is really coming? With prices of Huawei Ideos X5 dropping, ZTE will lose position of a top dog in low-end market if things don't change soon.

You've got a good webshop selling the Huawei's Ideos X5? If the prices really drop, they will threaten ZTE's position...

That lg x2 is looking even more tempting now, unless the skate launches at the same price as the blade.

LG Optimus 2x is looking nice but I heard it has a lot of bugs in firmware. Anyways, that LG is a different shelf than ZTE. 2x is LG's flagship for 2011. IMHO no comparison possible.

dragging this thread further off topic, the Optimus 2x has cm7 nightlies and it makes a big difference to the device.

Huawei Ideos X5 is £189.99 in UK, it's completely open for hacking and we may see a device specific forum soon.

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.


Orange has a Rio II so why not a sanfrancisco II
