4.3″ ZTE Skate Android smartphone
ZTE is also doing some big-ass Android smatphone and the ZTE Skate looks to be the flagship handset. Found this one at the ZTE booth in CommunicAsia last Wednesday.
The ZTE Skate reminds me of the HTC Desire HD only with a plasticky construction (think Dell Streak 5) and a bit thicker than most other Android smartphones I’ve seen.
The specs aren’t that impressive either but that really depends on what’s the price point of the Skate.
4.3″ display @ 480×800 pixels
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g, WiFi hotspot
GPS w/ aGPS support
5MP autofocus camera with dual-LED flash
Li-Ion battery 1400mAh
Android 2.2 Froyo
The one I saw on the booth says it’s running on Froyo but GSMArena puts it at 2.3 Gingerbread (probably the update is out).
It’s nothing to be excited about since we got the likes of the Cherry Mobile Magnum HD at 16k price point. However, if ZTE can bring this down to under 15k when it reaches the Philippines, then why not?
