ZTE first Windows Phone 7 mobile phone arriving early February for under £250

On-line mobile phone retailer Clove has made public they will be selling the first ever Microsoft based Windows Phone 7 handset from ZTE, known as Tania, with the low cost attached of £249.99 and with pre-ordering now possible..

ZTE was confirmed as a new maker of Windows Phone 7 mobile phones at the press preview event for the latest Windows Phone 7 'Mango' OS edition, in May last year - which our merged sister mobile phone publication OneMobileRing reported on here.

Clove released this news in a blog post to their http://blog.clove.co.uk/ website, which reads: 'We have had news of the ZTE Tania, a Windows Phone 7.5 handset, it will be coming in the middle of February.'

ZTE is well known for making handsets for mobile phone networks, such as the San Francisco and San Francisco II for Orange and the Smart for Vodafone. All of these do not carry the ZTE brand name, only the mobile phone network's name.

The Tania arrives with a 4.3-inch 800x480 touch screen display, running from a single core 1GHz processor, with 4GB of internal storage and contains a 5megapixel camera, with auto focus and flash.
