With the Orbit our main goal was to check whether Window Phone Tango runs as smooth as Mango does. Well, rest assured we didn't see any difference while moving those Live Tiles around on the bright 4" WVGA LCD display.
At the same time there were new features like the ability to manage your data connectivity while roaming and attach several items to your outgoing multimedia messages.
The plastic actually doesn't feel cheap and the whole phone looks a tad more sophisticated than a mere entry level device.
We were delighted to witness this, since the ZTE Orbit will probably start from free on contract when it lands April-June, and it offers a 5MP camera on the back that does 720p video plus a 1GHz processor - all basic requirements for a Windows Phone handset are covered.
To wrap it up we'd say that that the ZTE Orbit is rather well-built basic Windows Phone handset that is sure to entice many budgets and expand Microsoft's mobile OS footprint in emerging markets, or maybe not only there.

What Chinese comapnies ? Just ZTE ? And we don't know how the product will actually perform in terms of reliability and quality because if they are making these things for as little as they are selling them, where is the corner cutting ? They gotta save money somewhere.

What part of windows platform don't you all get. Windows don't need all that quad core or dual core to run smoothly. But if I was windows just for you all who are hungry on size I would put a quad core chip in starting with Nokia and samsung and blow away google.

I agree with your first two sentences. I bought my first ever WP7 device less than 3 months ago which has only a 1GHZ single-core chip and was blown away by how smooth and fast it is vs. Android dual-core! As to your third sentence, I can only say, Don't feed the trolls! LOL!

True. WP is buttery smooth. It's kinda pretty, and very simple. And that's about all it is. If these are the things you care for, then it is perfect for you. But if you get bored with the interface, well... you're stuck with it. And still missing some standard smartphone functions. However you can't beat the really VAST array of options of Android, nor its HUGE personalization possibilities. As for dual and more cores, you could use them for demanding tasks, mostly rich-graphics 3D games. The cores are not needed for the OS itself. So there's no room for comparison, both OS-es have their advantages.
