Overview of ZTE Tureis
The Tureis is ZTE's take on the massively popular BlackBerry form factor, with a 2.6 inch touchscreen on top of a 4 row QWERTY keyboard and optical trackpad. Like ZTE's Skate device, the Tureis is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and an 800 MHz processor.
The Gingerbread layout has been given a slight tweak to fit into the small screen factor but this remains a vanilla installation with all the personalisation offered by Google. The QWERTY keyboard is spaced just right for efficient messaging and the build quality a testament to newcomer ZTE's investments in recent years. The optical trackpad is suited for quick phone navigation and web browsing and the 3.2 Megapixel camera is great for taking quick snaps.
The ZTE Tureis is easily the cheapest Gingerbread experience available with this form factor and a great investment for anyone looking for a lightweight QWERTY Android device

There is a touch screen and a full qwerty keyboard just below it. Everything you need is here and at only £144, you may be expecting a dreadful experience. The experience you [...]
