ZTE Style S and V11-LTE tablet to land on US soil
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.

Looks like a cool phone, even the name suggests that (not style but skate). I hope they don't change the name when it comes out or sell it to another company before launch like they did with the ZTE Blade which later turned out to be Orange San Fransisco over here in the UK.
If it comes out as ZTE Skate I might just buy it.
