Overview of ZTE Skate

THE ZTE SKATE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE HTC DESIRE S AS AN ALTERNATIVE HERE.

ZTE have been in the business of producing budget smartphones and feature phones for some time and the Skate is the top end device for a new range being released in 2011. The ZTE Skate includes a large 4.3 capacitive touchscreen to navigate with and vanilla Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) installation as its operating system. Everything is powered by an 800 MHz processor, more than enough speed to keep the Skate running smoothly with no extra Android customisation or applications added by ZTE.

The Skate is manufactured with a neat black plastic finish to keep weight to a minimum at a skinny 120 grams, with both screen and Android hard keys sitting flush to the edges of the device and has the style to sit next to the big players it is competing with such as HTC and Samsung.

The 5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash will capture your memories wherever you are - the Skate also remains one of the only new Android handsets to keep the camera button available to use on the side of the phone itself, rather than having to use the touchscreen.

For anyone looking to get the newest Android smartphone experience without breaking the bank then the ZTE Skate could well be the device for you
