ZTE Tania now available from £89.95

The ZTE Tania, the first Windows Phone 7.5 device from the Chinese company, can now be had for as little as £89.95 from Amazon with free delivery and unlocked - permanently - rather than on deal of the day.

The Tania, which was launched early last year, comes with a massive 4.3in 800 x 480 pixel display. Like all previous generation Windows Phone handsets, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC clocked at 1GHz with 512MB of RAM, GPS, an FM radio and is only 10.7mm thick.

Its biggest drawback is the fact that it has just 4GB of onboard storage, out of which only 3GB is accessible to the user. A massive let down, although the sub-£90 price does sweeten the deal.

There’s also a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and Windows Phone 7.5 with Zune, Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft Office and Xbox.

The phone is being cleared out ahead of the massive launch of Windows Phone 8 handsets towards the end of next month. Already three manufacturers, Nokia, Samsung and HTC have confirmed they will offer handsets.

These are the Nokia Lumia 820, the Lumia 920, the Ativ S, the Windows Phone 8S and the Windows Phone 8X.

Other phones being currently discounted are the Nokia 710 and the Nokia 800 which can be had from £100 and £149 respectively.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
