Are you sure that is the skate? My monte carlo does not have any silver on it other than the earpiece.
Also the camera is a different shape

i've seen plenty of posts elsewhere saying that it is an unbranded zte blade (looks like they branded the case not the os!) and it should be sim unlocked if my french law knowledge serves me well.

this site kind of confirms it's made by zte at least - the official bluetooth site: http://www.bluetooth...ProductID=17514

200e = 175gbp, so way overpriced compared the the orange monte carlo, but cheap for an unbranded/unlocked zte skate.

I think that,
SFR Staraddict is Skate in cool looking casing.
SFR Startrail is Blade in ugly casing. ;)

The page says that Staraddict has 4,3" screen so it must be Skate. It's also been on the threads before that they are going to rebrand Skate as SFR Staraddict.

Startrail = ZTE Libra

Staraddict I have no idea. Doesn't look like a ZTE device.

Sim free - 209.90 euros - £183

PAYG - 199.90 euros - £175

Sim free a much better price compared to the price of the Skate at £220.

The Staraddict is the Skate but with a different casing

Not Vodafone ;)

SFR is currently 100% owned by the French group Vivendi. The SFR mobile phone network infrastructure was built by the mobile phone giant Vodafone, who previously had a 44% share in SFR until April 2011 when it sold the entire share back to Vivendi.

Staraddict looks so much better than Monte Carlo IMO. Let's see if we can swap the case (and physical keys) in the sooner future Posted Image

I would say unless Zte have made another serious schoolboy error then it won't make any difference whatsoever.
