ZTE Tania heralds redefined WP Mango specifications, first press pictures appear
The highlights of the ZTE Tania’s specs include:
- 4.3-inch WVGA display,
- a 1GHz processor,
- 512MB of RAM,
- 4GB of internal memory,
- a 5-megapixel camera
- 3G HSPA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and A-GPS.
Now, the 4GB of internal memory wouldn’t be a big deal in Android land, but for Microsoft’s platform, up until now, the minimum requirement asked for 8GB. The Chassis 1 specification, as it’s widely known, required a Qualcomm chip as well. Now, a slide out of Microsoft’s 2011 Shinagawa Conference in Japan confirms those have been changed to include lower-end devices:
- CPU is not specified,
- 2GB or more internal storage,
- Capacitive Touch Panel- 4 points or over multi-touch,
- 3MP+ camera,
- MicroUSB, 3.5mm jack,
- Sensors - A-GPS, Accelometer, Compass, Proximity.
Probably the biggest change seems to be the unspecified processor, which would allow more choice for phone makers. Currently, the low- to mid-end smartphone segments are well represented by Android, but could WP make a splash there as well?

I think if the devices have 2GB storage, the OMS must put SD slot on the device ... only the OS takes about 1GB of storage ...

I think that this phone will be a hit here in Serbia, I mean why someone would buy Nokia handset with same 4.3" display and similar specifics and for sure more expensive when he can buy ZTE much cheaper? I like the design.
