They're made in China. But so is your clothing and pretty much everything around you, so why not give these ZTE-made devices the benefit of doubt? At least, you should be able to save a buck, with the ZTE Style S and an upcoming LTE tablet, expected to land on a U.S. carrier sometime around the second half of 2011.
The ZTE Style S, also known as the ZTE Skate, is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset running on a modest Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset. The screen is 4.3 inches in size with a rather standard resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. In the photographic department, the Style S offers a 5MP camera on the back and a VGA front-facing shooter.
But even more exciting is word about the V11 4G LTE-capable tablet with a 10-inch screen sporting a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Don't mistake the reason for our excitement – it's the low price we are looking forward to, not the ground-breaking specs. Actually, the slate is expected with a 1.2GHz CPU and a 5-megapixel camera on the back, while the front holds a 1.3MP shooter. Nothing impressive if you add its hunger for energy – it will last only 5.5 hours! We have no further details, but we're sure to hear more about these as their launch approaches, so stay tuned.
