If there's one thing that buyers truly dislike, that would be waiting for a hot new product to launch so that they can buy it. Sadly, that's the case with the U.S. debut of the ZTE Grand S, which isn't going to be released on the U.S. market anytime soon. In fact, the smartphone's launch has been moved back to 2014, as revealed by ZTE's Lixin Cheng.
ZTE has been on sale across China since late March, offering 1080p screen goodness and quad-core processing power packed inside a super-slim body to anyone willing to spend over $500 on one.Cheng, who is head of the North American division at ZTE, stated that the specific requirements of U.S. carriers were to blame for the delay. Meanwhile,
So if the ZTE Grand S is ever to launch in the U.S., that isn't likely to happen earlier than the phone's first birthday. If for some reason that's the phone you've been waiting for, better start looking for an alternative.

If Nokia was to release the 3210 again the same date as ZTE Grand S in the US, I bet your mom's arses that it would sell a lot more than ZTE's Grand Slab. Heck, it might even outsell the iPhone 5sh*t.

What is the point of launching it in the USA then? If they are going to be delayed, why not skip the launch for USA and launch future successor devices instead? If they delay it so much it would have been outdated by 2014, because all the high end phones are coming out in Q4 for the holidays.
