ZTE Skate demo video

zte-skate-1 The ZTE Skate was announced way back in February and has been on sale for a short time as the Monte Carlo on Orange here in the UK and it’s proven to be really popular.

The ZTE Skate is the SIM-free version of the same handset and goes on sale shortly. Our review model is pre-retails and unboxed but we think we have the final hardware and final ROM, albeit that ours seems to be Portuguese.

There has been some confusion over the CPU speed of the Skate though. At ZTE’s press event at the Ice Bar in London some weeks ago a ZTE representative stated that the SIM-free version would have a 1GHz CPU where the Orange Monte Carlo has 800MHz. However upon closer inspection of our review model reveals the same 800MHz CPU. Not sure if this is going to be updated of if that was just duff information!
