ZTE Tania makes an appearance running Windows Phone 7.5

Although we're not expecting ZTE to launch any Windows Phones near the shores of Europe or North America anytime soon, the company is expected to be a big player in spreading Windows Phone goodness in East Asia.

The ZTE Tania is their first attempt into the market and it doesn't look half bad.

  • UMTS / HSPA + 900/2100MHz bands
  • 800 × 480 WVGA 4.3-inch TFT screen
  • 3D acceleration
  • 1GHZ processor
  • 512MB of cache
  • 4GB storage
  • 1400mAh battery
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera
  • 10.5mm slim

The device comes in white or black and honestly, looks a lot like a Samsung Focus, which isn't a bad thing either. No word on availability, but it's probably closer than we expect.

  • I like the look of this, and think it looks better than the Focus, actually (probably because the device is white). I think it's great that the oem's are offering color choices for WP devices - although Black is a universal color, not everyone wants a Black colored phone.
  • Isn't the minimum chassis requirement 8GB memory?
  • I've seen some mention of lower powered options, but I thought that was with the Tango OS version. Of course there is always the possibility the infomration posted above is wrong.I looked at the ZTE site and they don't show any specs. By the way ZTE has some nice looking phones on their site: http://wwwen.zte.com.cn/en/products/mobile/index.jsp
  • Only 4GB of storage and no FFC. smh...
  • The best thing I can say about this is that the battery is bigger than on my HD7.
  • First white phone that I've ever seen that I can honestly say is absolutly stunning.
