Pre-order the ZTE Skate from Clove

It was only last week that Matt and I attended a press event in London hosted by ZTE where they announced that ZTE branded devices will be on sale here in the UK in the near future. The chaps at Clove already have the Skate available for pre-order and at only £249.99 (inc VAT) this one looks like a real bargain. This price is still to be confirmed nearer the time and a release date is not until September but I think this huge Android device is going to do real well.

Of course we will see the ZTE Skate sooner as it is coming to the Orange network but renamed as the Monte Carlo. We are yet to see what Orange will do in terms of a custom UI but if you want pure vanilla Android then you may have to wait for the sim free version.

Either way it is great to see ZTE pushing brand awareness. I think they are here for the long run.

Features of ZTE Skate:
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 4.3" capacitive touchscreen
  • 800 x 480 resolution
  • MicroSDHC up to 32 GB
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
  • 5 MP camera with autofocus and flash
  • aGPS and Google Maps
  • 126 x 68 x 11.3 mm
