ZTE Axon now available thru Amazon, Newegg, eBay, as promised

It looks like ZTE made good on their word that their cost-friendly flagship smartphone beater – the ZTE Axon – would be available in the US market by August 1, as the phone is now indeed available not just via ZTE’s online store, but also via Amazon, Newegg and eBay.

NUU Z8 Android 5.0-Lollipop powered phone is a worthy newcomer

You may not be familiar with NUU Mobile but that's fine. I don't know the brand either but the company isn't really interested in making it big in the United States. No, it has no plans of beating big names like Apple, Samsung, or other Chinese phone manufacturers out there. NUU is content in making unlocked phones and releasing them in the country and making them ready-for-purchase from various networks like T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless, MetroPCS, or AT&T. NUU's goal is to reach more people as possible by being widely available and ready for quick use.
