ZTE Skate graces MWC, packs a 4.3-inch screen and Gingerbread
Gingerbread will power the ZTE Skate experience, and all the usual goodies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS will be present as well.
A few smartphone heavyweights were announced in the last few hours, so do you think this handset stands a chance against, say, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo?

Looks like a big step up for ZTE. Give them another year, and it will be interesting to see how far they have come. I suspect that they have a lot of good things in the pipeline.

one reason nokia did not use android and instead went for windows is because cellphone makers using android too saturated already from the biggest cellphone makers like samsung, lg and sony ericsson to unknown or upstart companies. this phone have a really chance of beating some of the heavyweight becaues you're getting the same phone features but a lot cheaper price tag.

the phone looks lice but the same features? I bet it will just be another cheap man phone, nothing people will expect much from compared with the big players... the reason nokia skiped android its because in terms of programing for the OS is far ahead of the competition... and they have competitors that will get them on most things
-Sony Ericsson will fight Nokia in the camera department
-Motorola has a solid branding (Droids) and will stand against Nokia's durability
-Samsung will fight with its screen and processor
I don't think that Nokia worries about ZTE or others making middle/ low ranged phones taking over their hight end phones...

ZTE is really stepping up their game. I hope this comes to a low key carrier like Metro PCS of V Mobile etc. The processor is a bit disappointing though. The reso is probably around 480x800 give or take. I really like the looks too.
