The zte mimosa x is called U970 in china. And It is a TD-SCDMA version,which is a China Mobile's 3G standard. But this version get only 5megapixel of cammera. I'm sure there will be a WCDMA version later.Maybe is called V970

the U970 is on sell in 25th April.

The price is 2199 RMB with a 8G microSD card,which is about £215

And I believe that the wcdma version is a little cheaper than the td-scdma version.That's true in china.

update 1: There are more colour back and the price is down to £197 with a 8G of microSD card !

Well, ZTE is just like a lazy boy, I guess the ZTE Era will be released in the end of this year ! because the quad-core processor phone isn't so accepted by people now ! and the price is too high ! I am not sure The first launch country is china ! ZTE is used to launching his phone in UK first . such as the ZTE Tania,we can't buy it in china now ! :(

TD-SCDMA is the third generation mobile communication standard which China proposed (i.e. 3G) .v970 supports wcdma. u970 supports TD-SCDMA

Can this handset be used in the UK? And would you know whether I can buy this at the said price above states without incurring more shipping tax & charges?...

If that is the price,I think it is too expensive.I expected it to be around 150 pounds..........and I really waited it to come out.Now we have to look for some other smart phone to buy :)

I think it's a very decent price. He states, that outside-china price will be lower. Also, it is a new phone, so the prices will probably drop in a few months... I think it's totally a bargain for anything under 200€, just look for a phone with comparable specs (SoC, qHD display, memory, camera, camcorder), it would probably cost more than 400€. Tegra 2 is relatively new SoC and very well performing, so I suppose it's a bit expensive still. Uncomparable to outdated an cpu in blade, or skate, that lacks performance, so the price is reasonable.

uk price will be £189.99 and that's sim free

if a carrier brands it like orange it could be even cheaper,

the era & mimosa x are planned for a Q2 release, witch is any time from now (June)

What about the price of ERA? How much it will cost in UK?....it seems that my new phone will be either MIMOSA X or ERA (depending when will ZTE release them),and if HUAWEI doesn't release some more interesting and cheaper new model :D

And TILLAZ,since you have experience with mobile phones,how do you think MIMOSA X compares to SAN DIEGO?Which one is better according to the specifications?

i didn't find the price online... i was emailed by a company that will be stocking both the zte era & mimosa x

its fairly obvious that the mimosa x will cost no more than £199.99 in the uk... considering its been available in china at this price for the past 3 month

zte era will range from £249.99 depending where you buy it..

if people don't want to believe it then that's fine ;)

mimosa x has better specs, its dual core tegra 2
i would avoid the SAN DIEGO.. as a developer its not looking good for that device...

I'm assuming that you'll be getting either the mimosa x or the era?... & if so, you'd be devving it & try to get ICS custom rom, maybe CM9 for it some time after rooting it?...

yeah, zte era is certain for me as i already have a tegra 2 device (lg optimus 2x) so the mimosa x is not an option for me.
i will be making a custom rom based on stock ics for the era
