That was when I started checking out videos from Mobile World Congress which involved ZTE. It seems as though they're going to make it big this year, introducing the Era which is a quad-core Tegra 3 mobile phone and its PF 100 and T98 tegra 3 powered tablets. As well as those, it has announced plenty of other exciting new products - which I'm hoping are nearly as low priced as the Blade and the Crescent. These include the Skate Acqua (or simply just Acqua when I researched) and the Mimosa X.
Admittedly the specs of the Mimosa X make enter a state of europhoria. The 4.3 inch phone packs a Dual-core 1.2GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM - which sure beats my current blade hands down. It is said to be "probably the cheapest Tegra 2 phone on the market", shipping initially with Gingerbread then being updated to Ice Cream Sandwich soon after. There are literally no other words I can use to explain my excitement. The Acqua pretty much gives me the same feeling, especially since they are due to land in Europe in May.
My only wonder now is what do you reckon the pricing of these devices would be? Would they try to go money crazy like Huawei seem to have gone or would they try to keep to their market whilst pushing boundaries and possibly becoming a well accomplished top manufacturer.
