ZTE Venture heads to Virgin Mobile on March 15th

Death of Ceaser? Check. Abdication of Tsar Nicholas the Second? Birth of Eva Longoria? Check. Now you can add yet another auspicious event to the Ides of March, when the ZTE Venture lands on Virgin Mobile this Thursday. While the Venture may not have the history-defining characteristics of, say, the third battle of Kharkov, it's still a pretty big deal for anybody who wants a Treo-style QWERTY candybar phone and doesn't particularly like mobile contracts. The Venture will be available starting on March 15th for $99.

ZTE “Optimus Barcelona” is certifiably baffling

You've read these stories before: a previously unknown Android phone has been revealed from its certification listings. This time it's both the WiFi and Bluetooth certification authorities, and the company asking for its papers is Chinese manufacturer ZTE. There's just one puzzling thing about this phone: it's been given the official moniker "ZTE Optimus Barcelona". Say what?

ZTE Era hands-on

ZTE is making a splash at Mobile World Congress thanks to a wide collection of smartphones - most of which have been announced in name only. One exception is the new Era, the Chinese OEM's highest-end smartphone due out some time in the next few months. We made a point of seeking out the Era for its take on the quad-core smartphone, since everyone and their parent company seems t have on to show off. Like most of its contemporaries, the ZTE Era uses Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor in its new 4-Plus-1 incarnation.

ZTE adds seven new Android phones and two tablets to line up

The quad-core Era isn't the only thing that ZTE revealed in its Mobile World Congress press event. While details (and photos) are hard to come by, company representatives detailed no less than nine new Android devices heading to the market over the next year, with a 7-2 split between smartphones and tablets. Thankfully they've broken down the releases into markets, so there's no confusion as to who gets what - at least for now, most of these phones are headed to the market in the second or third quarter, so naturally nothing is set in stone.

ZTE Era joins the quad-core race with Tegra 3

Quad-core smartphones certainly seem to be the recurring theme at Mobile World Congress this year. ZTE, usually known as a more conservative, budget OEM, just revealed their first quad-core device running Nvidia's new 4-Plus-1 Tegra 3 processor. The Era is ZTE's new flagship, though as far as hard specs are concerned it runs a little behind the pack with a 4.3-inch 960x540 display - if you care about those things, of course. It should be quite the looker, though: a 7.8mm-thin profile puts it squarely in RAZR territory.

ZTE will unveil new quad-core 4G LTE devices at MWC

As MWC nears, more manufacturers are starting to hint at what they have to offer. Joining this bandwagon is ZTE; they plan to release multiple devices next week that incorporate both quad-core processors and 4G LTE. Precisely which 4G LTE network they've decided on is still unknown.

ZTE Optik official: 7-inch 3G Honeycomb tablet for $99 on contract

The options for cheap tablets are increasing, thanks to Chinese manufacturers like ZTE. Their first entry into the American tablet market is the Optik, a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet bound for The Now Network starting this Sunday, February 5th. The Optik is roughly the equal of the Huawei Springboard (AKA MediaPad) over on T-Mobile, with one important distinction: it starts at just $99. Of course, to get that sweet price you'll need to sign a two-year contract for a data plan. This tablet is probably in the same family as the ZTE V66 we saw earlier.

ZTE V66 tablet for Verizon spotted in Bluetooth filing

We've seen ZTE next-generation 7-inch tablet before, but only as a rounded rectangle courtesy of the FCC. Now Unwired View spotted the ZTE V66 running through the certification gauntlet at Bluetooth SIG. There isn't much more to report on the Verizon-bound device, except that it's certainly got Bluetooth. But the spcial interest group was kind enough to throw up a thumbnail of the tablet's front press shot, which you can see blown up below. While no dates are mentioned, the presence of a finished photo indicates that the tablet is ready for release soon - though not necessarily on Verizon.
