The Chinese at ZTE, like their conationals at Huawei, have a lot to prove this year at MWC. Both Chinese manufacturing giants have huge global businesses (ZTE is number four cell phone maker in the world), but little influence in the immensely lucrative Western smartphone markets. However, that may change in the close future, and Samsung and HTC should really be worried. ZTE previously announced the beautiful Mimosa X, a dual-core Android 4.0 device with a lightweight profile and an equally light footprint on your budget. With all its qualities, the ZTE Mimosa X isn’t the kind of phone that…

Less than a day after announcing two new ICS-running smartphones, ZTE ups the ante with the Mimosa X, a 4.3” device running on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 System-on-a-Chip . We have already seen many devices built around Nvidia’s dual-core architecture, but the Mimosa X is special in two significant ways. First, it holds the honor of being the first smartphone completely built on Nvidia silicon, sporting the Icera radio technology, which the Santa Clara-based giant acquired last year. Second, it’s the first phone that runs on Tegra 2 to target the mid-market, or, as Nvidia calls it, the mainstream buyer. ZTE…

In lieu of the patent infringement lawsuits filed by Apple, a strong number of Chinese handset manufacturers have formed an alliance to counter the attack. This group includes key players in Chinese handset vendors such as Lenovo, ZTE, Coolpad, TCL and Konka. Apart from Apple, this union also serves as preparation for any future lawsuit that will be presented against them by other international manufacturers including Nokia and Microsoft. During Q3 of 2011, the shipment of smartphones has totaled 24 million in China. This led the Asian country to outperform the United States. As such, they have become the largest…

ZTE, a lesser known player in the smartphone market that is big in Asia, already let loose it’s quad (quintuple) core Tegra 3 tablet at a tradeshow in China but a few short moons ago. While ZTE is much better known for its low-end Android phones in Asia than anything else, they appear to be wanting to turn the tide. With this latest leak, it appears that the giant OEM is stepping up its game, and will be bringing not one – but two Quad Core Tegra 3 tablets to market in the coming months. Now, as the image will…

Some of the models to currently out (as of this writing) are the HTC Flyer, the newer Samsung Galaxy Tab models and the Motorola Xoom.

One of the hottest icebreakers at the 2011 Mobile World Congress is whether or not we’ve entered the Gingerbread Age. Following on the footheels of the Optimus 2X and the Galaxy S II, ZTE unveiled its skateboard-inspired , Android 2.3-running “Skate.” The Skate packs a 4.3-inch screen, 5-megapixel NSDPA camera, Bluetooth, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and a G-sensor into 4.2 ounce shell. Its only noteworthy tradeoff is its 800MHz CPU.  This is a step behind higher-end models, but its Adreno 200 graphics processing unit and distinct silhouette—with an expected price point below $200 for North American customers—make it a quite attractive option for Android newcomers.

The 7-inch ZTE Light Android tablet isn’t anything to shout about, but it does a good job at the obvious stuff. It runs Android 2.1 and packs Wi-Fi and 3G radio. Of course, there is a GPS unit along with an SD card slot for increasing your memory. What is nice to hear is that this device is alleged to offer 10 hours of battery life. We have no clue from the press release as to what the price point will be on this device. We’re not there either so we can’t give you the first hand account, but apparently…
