ZTE launches first Windows Phone 7 handset on £10 to £20 mobile phone deals

The mobile phone maker is synonymous with networks such as Orange and Vodafone, where the company makes rebadged devices, with names such as Orange San Francisco and Vodafone Smart.

The ZTE Tania will ship with a 4.3-inch 800x480 TFT LCD touch screen, whilst powered by a Qualcomm MSM 8255 1GHz chipset, with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, plus a 5megapixel camera with autofocus and flash.

Running the handset is the very latest version of the OS, in the Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango' edition whilst the mobile also contains an FM radio and A-GPS.

News of this handset first reached ITProPortal when on-line mobile phone reseller Clove Technology announced via their blog that it will be selling the handset for £249.99, here.

The ZTE Tania will be arriving next month with Virgin Media, Go Mobile and with channel distributer Brightpoint - free on contracts around the £10-£20 mark.
