ZTE becomes official smartphone for three NBA teams
ZTE's USA arm has become the official smartphone manufacturer for three teams in the NBA. The New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors are the teams that will be promoting ZTE's handsets this coming season. As part of the deal, ZTE will support the charitable activities of each team. That includes the Knicks' Garden of Dreams, the Rockets' Season of Giving and the Warriors' Community Phone Drive.

ZTE is looking to expand its presence in the U.S., and has recently offered some interesting budget priced models like the ZTE ZMAX phablet for T-Mobile. Priced at just $252, the 5.7 inch device offers a 720 x 1280 resolution screen, quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU and a 3400mAh battery. Over at Boost, the manufacturer has a 5 inch model with similar specs called the ZTE Warp Sync.

Some researchers have ZTE listed as the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the U.S. and ZTE is hoping that it can continue moving up the ranks with its budget priced premium models. The manufacturer had a deal last year with the Houston Rockets which the team's GM, Tad Brown, characterized as being "very successful".
