ZTE to make two Galaxy Note-style smartphones

The Galaxy Note has become a surprising hit: the last we heard from Samsung, the 5.3-inch Android smartphone had sold an amazing 5 million units worldwide. This has inspired some competition from the likes of LG (with the Optimus Vu) and Panasonic (with the ELUGA Power), and now it looks like Chinese manufacturer ZTE us joining in the fray. Company representatives told Reuters that they were planning not one but two "phablets" for an unspecified release date.

ZTE N910 clears the FCC with LTE radio bands

Oh FCC, how we do appreciate you. Without your strict regulation of the airwaves in the Land of the Free, how would we know what wireless goodies are headed our way? Well, leaks, press releases, trade shows and presentation events, just to name a few, but that doesn't mean we aren't grateful. The latest goody to sneak out of the Federal Communications Commission is the ZTE N910, a phone last spotted at Mobile World Congress. It's running a combination of CDMA and LTE bands in its wireless radio, but not the standard ones that Verizon uses. This means it's probably headed for a smaller regional carrier.

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.
