ZTE Blade is available locked to Orange UK for £110 (€140), it runs 2.1 w/ Orange crap, and ZTE are making Froyo for it (leaked alphas available)
Most of the specs are excellent for the price - except it's just 600mhz - and camera is 3.2mp of crap
On 2.1 it gets 400, while on 2.2 it gets 700
Hopefully a stable kernel OC @ 800mhz will be available soon
Paul, Admin of MoDaCo, has really brought life to this phone and has made a nice review
Unfortunately for me, in 1916 communist terrorists revolted against the UK and we are no longer part of it
so the issues are:
ZTE has crappy product control, and I will need to be able to return phone to shop to get a replacement
Orange UK is, you guessed it [!] only in the UK, fortunately for me the UK still control a bit of my country
Unfortunately, I live as far as possible away from Northern Ireland as you can and still have a bus service, and its seven hours to NI
I think I will try to convince my parents to Christmas shop in NI.
The phone is not that bad guys.. Only just because it has a 600Mhz Processor and 3.2 MP Camera doesn't ruin the phone! Use a real camera for photos if you don't want a 3.2MP, And shadow, The Specs are pretty amazing for a phone at it's price, Hope for you to get it soon and Join as in the fun side! Android!
